    Example text

    I remember one meeting that spent a good amount of time determining whether the agenda was in the proper order. Politics wasn’t fun; people were busy; young political groups were lame . . so how could Matt and I get our friends a little more politically involved? We figured we needed to bring politics to the natural habitat of our generation: a bar. We needed to make it part of our friends’ social life, not something they suspended their life to join. We needed to make it easy and fun. So we decided to start a weekly gathering in our local dive bar where people knew politics would be on the table.

    Furthermore, people are busy. Our friends had jobs, and in addition to their workdays, they had relationships and time at the gym and volunteer projects. Asking them to get more involved in political conversation sounded like asking them to make more time in their week . . which they just didn’t have.
