Letters to the Editor

Thanks, Crossroads | Letter

I have attended quite a number of the public library’s Crossroads lectures over the past several years, but felt compelled to comment on the most recent, “Preparing for Collapse” by Dmitry Orlov.

While I felt uncomfortable on a number of occasions during the lecture, I found myself thinking about the subject, and discussing the ideas expressed during the lecture, for quite some time afterwards. I also felt encouraged that our community tolerates and encourages debate of what some might describe as radical ideas — something I’m certain many communities would not.

Thank you to the Crossroads committee and the Orcas Public Library for promoting such a thought-provoking dialogue in our community.
