Washington Metro Objectivism Discussion (WMOD)

             Friday, January 21, 2000   

             "Waco, Secession and John Galt"
       Strategies for Liberty in the 21st Century

                by Carol Moore 

Millions have been inspired by the vision of John Galt
and friends of "Atlas Shrugged" withdrawing their energies
from a bureaucratic world that stifles them.  But what happens
to separatists and secessionists in the real world?  And how
can those who want freedom separate from the Big Brother
Behemoth without getting crushed?

Carol Moore, author of "The Davidian Massacre" and coordinator
of forthcoming WWW.SECESSION.NET will talk about the government's
crimes against those they only perceived as secessionists-the
Branch Davidians. She will present an overview of secessionist
movements worldwide.  And she will discuss strategies for
establishing a libertarian-oriented network of secessionists

Carol has been an activist and writer in the feminist, libertarian,
peace and other movements since the 1970s.  She is the author of
"The Davidian Massacre" and has appeared on Nightline and the
McNeil Lehrer show, as well as a variety of cable talk shows,
and dozens of radio programs.  You can contact her at 
CarolMoore@kreative.net.  She sends out email updates on feminist,
libertarian, and peace activities in the Washington, DC metro

              December Meeting

Unfortunately Eric Raymond was unable to make it to DC on
December 17 to speak on "Open Source Software" due to
train schedule problems. But thanks to Kirez Korgan and
many others we had a lively discussion on the topic. 

      When and Where is the WMOD Meeting?

Please join WMOD on Friday, January 21.  Anyone who is
interested in rational discussion of Ayn Rand's ideas is welcome.
Note that our meeting location is Metro accessible.  You can
either join us for drinks at 6:30 with dinner at 7 PM and/or for
the talk (free) at 8:15 PM at the Hunan Palace in Rosslyn, VA
just across the Key Bridge from Georgetown.  The street address is
1812 North Moore Street.  If you come by Metro, get off at the
Rosslyn Metro Exit and the Hunan Palace is only a few feet away.
Take the street exit on N. Moore Street (across street from Roy
Rogers/Burger King), go out of Metro and take a left, and the
Palace is a few feet down N. Moore Street.  If you drive, there is
a parking garage (Allstate) next door to the Palace that is free
after 6:00 PM.  Due to construction you may have to go down the
ramp to the underground level.  There will be a $15 fixed price
dinner (including tax and tip), or you can order from the menu. 
Please RSVP to WMOD at (703) 820-7696 before noon on Friday
1/21 so that we can tell the restaurant how many tables to set
up and how many to expect for dinner.  For more information,
call the Hunan Palace at (703) 528-8188, or call David Saum
at (703) 820-7696 (W) or (703) 671-5119 (H).  

                  Future Meetings

WMOD meetings are generally held on the third Wednesday of each
month.  We are always looking for new stimulating meeting topics
related to Objectivism.  Please contact WMOD if you have
suggestions for meeting topics and locations, or if you can
volunteer some time to arrange meetings.
