Everyone can suggest a question. The moderator puts them all on the board. We then vote on which one to discuss. A successful Socrates Cafe occurs when someone walks in ten minutes late and can figure out which topic we chose. It can be a lot of fun, as it was tonight.
I recommend to anyone looking for something more intellectually stimulating than goofing off on the Internet to look into Socrates Cafe and see if there is one in your area.
