Do you find yourself less than interested in the results of the upcoming election and more interested in creating alternative solutions to the real problems facing society? Have you ever wished you could connect with hundreds of high-power individuals all working to build and share ideas for a peaceful, conscious, prosperous and technologically empowered Humanity 2.0?

“If TED and Burning Man had a baby, it would be Voice & Exit

This 3-day conference and festival is right around the corner and will be taking place in Austin, Texas on November 11th – November 13th. Join the global community of “Exiters” – people who aren’t f*cking around when it comes to getting busy transforming our world toward human flourishing and enlightenment. Learn, collaborate, experiment and connect with like-minded people who are ready to criticize by creating.

Voice & Exit is not your typical “conference”. The experience is designed to literally take you into the future–and prepare you to participate in its creation.

Top-notch speakers will present on topics such as: community pioneering, social entrepreneurship, competitive governance, future cities/ startup cities, biohacking, radical life extension, crypto technologies, consciousness, transformative tech, exponential innovations, life philosophy, medical breakthroughs, space colonization, personal development, conscious capitalism, transhumanism, alternative education, and transformative justice. To top it off, a huge festival will occur on Saturday evening featuring interactive tech demos, live music, beautiful dancers, and mind-altering installations to round out this otherworldly party.

Austin! Have you been looking for an opportunity to get together with a group to critically examine philosophical texts? Well, here's your chance. We are hosting Socratic Happy Hours to discuss readings that relate to your life.

Join us over drinks and casual discussion over George Orwell's essay, "Politics and the English Language." This essay, dating back to 1946, will likely give some insight into problems we're still facing today.

Sable will be leading us through the essay, socratic seminar style. Participants will join for an hour long discussion where we address open-ended questions based on the text, listen to each others comments and respond thoughtfully, and walk away with a better understanding of the topic at hand as well as connecting more with those who attend.

Is political speech and writing the "defense of the indefensible"? Does it make lies sound truthful and murder respectable? How can we counter what's going on and help strive for sincerity in language? We'll find out together on Wednesday, November 15th at 7:30pm. (Brew and Brew is particularly busy this month, so we shifted our date from the normaly first Thursday meeting). Your first drink will be on us! Please help us spread the word.

*This event is open to anyone interested in having conducive dialogue about the essay at hand and those that agree to come prepared to engage on the text. Please read the text beforehand; there's a link to it in the "discussion" section, and we'll provide hard copies in person.
