-isms: What Do They Mean?
Hosted by Crossing Party Lines

In previous meetings we’ve discussed a lot of -isms, from classism to racism, socialism and capitalism to interventionism and isolationism. People rally against them or advocate for them. At this meeting, we’ll discuss -isms in general, starting with this definition from the web:
a distinctive practice, system, or philosophy, typically a political ideology or an artistic movement.

  • How do -isms apply in your life? Do you identify as adherent to a philosophical ism?
  • Do you find your favorite -ism gives you a sense of shared identity and belonging?
  • Does being able to point to an -ism help you work toward a better future?
