Lately, the PLG London Chapter has been having discussion after discussion on current events. We most recently spent a great deal of time talking about the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo office and related acts of violence in France. Our talk covered censorship, terrorist motivations, French colonialism and imperialism, and the purpose of terrorism and its effects. We would like to share snippets from our debate with the world. If we did have a conclusion – apart from the apparent one that more voices seeking understanding is better than just one – it would be that seeking a single answer to a complex situation such as this is often dangerously polarizing and shortsighted.
