The topics will come under the main topic of the relationship of today’s society to the principles of the Declaration of Indepen dence, entitled “Life, Li berty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” The discussions are de signed to make people more aware of governmental prob lems today and help them to find solutions to the prob lems. Persons who have studied the philosophical side of the Declaration will be a part of the 12 town meetings. Topics will be dis cussed in relation to the lo cal etnd national levels. Five main topics will be discussed under the larger topic of “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” The first is “All Men Are Created Equal.” The first sub-topic under “All Men Are Created Equal” is “Health: Right or Privilege?” Some of the questions to be discussed are: what is the promise or threat of National Health Insurance?
