Synopses of talks

Speaker Synopsis Date and time
Ron Weissenberg Orania – Whitewash, white elephant or white what?Orania- An independent democratic state within South Africa, or an all-white enclave of Afrikaner Calvinism and nationalism?
With some Constitutional interpretation and serious use of colour on this patina of possibility , could this model of self-determination be a contender for our citizenship?

Stephan Botes When government operates in fictionHow the de jure government of the united (in lower case) States having been superceded by the de facto Government of the UNITES STATES, an ens legis, a creature of the law, a federal corporation operating in legal fiction and no longer bound by constitutional principles, affects us in South Africa. 16.00-17.00 Saturday 11/10/14
Ivo Vegter The tinfoil hat loonies were right all alongThe surveillance state, and the implications of Edward Snowden’s revelations. 10-11

Andrew KennyChiefs & Traders Chiefs and Traders:  Explaining our Evil Labour LawsMy talk will be trying to explain a mystery of morality and economics.  Why do so many people believe that it is morally better for an unemployed man to starve to death rather than work for a salary below the prescribed minimum?  I believe the answer lies deep in our evolutionary past. 15.00-16.00 Friday
10/10/14
Erik Peers Going against the grain;  is Noakes a Libertarian?Is free choice in what we eat not one of our most fundamental liberties?
The world, including South Africa is in the throes of an unprecedented exponential increase in obesity, and allied chronic diseases. The magnitude of this is set to dwarf AIDS.Is this a failure of government or of the free market?
