From Bro Ed T:
When I joined HOD it was for the high purpose of the fraternity and the comradery of the brothers.
Recently, however, another reason has emerged. The high quality speakers are providing enlighteningtalks and discussions.
Dayan Gross of the Anti Defamation League (ADL) spoke at this months meeting. Regardless of your opinion about the ADL, its mission, and how it has evolved since its founding in 1913, learning how it views itself and how it functions was both interesting and enlightening. We got a special insiders look at it. For instance, we learned that the ADL, as a non-governmental organization, is not constrained by due process in its ability to investigate and surveil individuals, as opposed to the FBI, which has constitutional constraints on its authority to carry out surveillance and investigations of individuals. This results, we learned, in a symbiotic relationship between the ADL and the FBI. A deep dive into the workings of such organizations as the ADL and FBI is enlightening and worthwhile. Thank you to Mr. Gross, HOD, and our brethren who bring such high quality and enlightening speakers to our group.
