Open invite - March 15, New York

For the past year or so, openDemocracy's New York office has be co-sponsoring events with the New York Society for Ethical Culture.

If you happen to be in New York, you should join us for a debate on the merits and de-merits of privatising social security, on 15 March at 7:30-8pm with author and columnist Paul Krugman, Michael Tanner (from The Cato Institute, and one of the architects  of Bush's current social security plans), and Joshua Micah Marshall from

It's free to the public, and the auditorium seats about 800, but I recommend coming early. At the last event we turned several hundred people away for lack of space. The address is New York Society for Ethical Culture, 2 W 64th Street, New York, NY (on the corner of Central Park West).

We held the last event just after the US presidential election with Richard Clarke, America's former counter-terrorism advisor, Amy Goodman, radio host of Democracy Now!, Greg Palast, author of The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, and Esther Kaplan, author of With God on Their Side. Have a look at the webcast of the complete event (ooh, video). Clarke says may things about US national security (and nuclear threats) that are just as relevant today.
