Welcome to IndyBuzz

IndyBuzz provides information about Central Indiana's most stimulating and thought provoking events -- discussions and conferences, art exhibitions, films, music performances. It tells you what's happening … explains why you should be part of what’s happening. More than an events calendar, though, IndyBuzz tries to make events more meaningful for participants by suggesting an article or two to read before the event, recommending books or websites that will be sources of further information after the event, and pointing out related events that are worth attending.

Feb. 6: Deroy Murdock at the Economic Club

Deroy Murdock, one of the most prolific and influential young conservatives writing today, speaks to the Economic Club

When: February 6, 12:00-1:30 PM

Where: Indiana Convention Center.

You should check out some of Deroy Murdock's articles. He likes his red-bloded conservatism pretty red. Don't expect any surprises from his talk. Expect a lot of the Chamber of Commerce members attending to cheer loudly, but also expect a good number of them shake their heads ... Murdock's hard-hitting approach may increasingly be recognized as self-defeating, only contributing to a polarization that is getting inthe way of solving serious problems. Of course, some people like Murdock would probably respond by saying things aren't polarized enough, that the line between right and wrong, good and evil, is still too fuzzy. And some people like Murdock are making a pretty good living by being polarizing.

We have a chance here in Central Indiana to avoid the sort of polarizing rhetoric that gets in the way of reasoned discourse and problem solving. CHeck out the new group: the American Values Alliance to find out more.
