Section 10; Group 3 September 30th Recap

Today we started by assigning individual duties for everybody in the "Philosophy through Comedy" group to have a contribution in addition to their own research and presentation to the group project as well as talking about the project for a bit to make sure everybody was on the same page.  David and Dustin split off to work on their group project since they have the dubious honor of going first on Thursday.

Then we went into our philosophical discussions for the day.  Topics included the moral justification for restriction of freedoms- specifically prison and taking away the right to vote, what types of civil disobedience are acceptable and which aren't and the free speech zones used to corral political protests.  Opinions were varied, and debate thoughtful, as per usual.
