Member Code of Conduct

Rights and responsibilities

Together, we strive to educate society the value of personal freedom, free enterprise, property rights, limited government and sound money.

We believe in the freedom of expression - however, here on the facilities provided, regard yourself as being in polite society, therefore, treat everyone, especially those with whom we disagree, with respect. Let’s refrain from ad hominem attacks or generalizations about people based on their age, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability status, etc.

We treat debate not as a struggle of one against another, but mutual cooperation in a quest for truth.

We assume good intent on behalf of those with whom we debate, and those with whom we disagree. If we disagree, we do so kindly.

To society
