On a local level, the Reason Club has invited
speakers on a variety of issues such as the city’s monopoly
on public transportation, corruption in government, the need
for a Hawai‘i think tank, maritime policy (the Jones
Act), and small business opportunities.
On a national level, the group aims to address outsourcing,
the environment, education, capitalism, welfare, globalization,
war on drugs, immigration, taxation, and more.
The Reason Club has invited Cliff Slater, Loy Weston, Malia
Zimmerman, Richard Rowland, Senator Sam Slom and U.S. Representative
Case to share their views with HPU students and all who attend
the club’s meetings.
In addition to arranging guest speakers, club members regularly
watch news reports (such as John Stossel’s “Give
Me A Break”) and documentaries and engage in discussions
of the opinions and ideas explored.
Those who are eager to express their opinions are encouraged
to write to Hawai‘i Reporter’s “Fresh Perspective,” the
HPU Kalamalama newspaper, or other media outlets. Group members
can also be a part of Reason’s group e-mails and share
ideas over the net.
The Reason Club is classified as a special interest group,
but any event that has an effect on society is considered
for the club to explore. This is where diversity of our membership
is very important. Everyone’s view contributes
to the Reason process. All views are welcome and appreciated.
