I think this is an excellent suggestion. The Democratic party was started in the 1790s by forming Democratic-Republican Societies. I think one way to ensure civil, informative conversations would be to follow standard debating format, giving set times for making a point, and for rebuttal. How many of you remember when most schools hosted debating clubs? Some meetings could also be forums for members to present papers on specific issues. Good luck. Please keep us informed of your progress in making this happen, so we can model similar groups.
