The lively Greater Philadelphia Thinking Society discussion happened on December 9, 2012. (http://www.meetup.com/thinkingsociety/events/85461612/) Below is the description of the event on the Meetup page:
Most discussions about government start from the assumption that we need a government, but is that really the case? Will society fall apart without it? At this Meetup we'll consider the issue using the following definition of government: an organization with a monopoly on the use of force within a specified geographical area.
Arguments will be heard pro and con while alternatives will be looked at.

The Montgomery County, PA libertarians gave out the Monty Awards for distinguished activism at their holiday party on December 7, 2012. Great acceptance speeches were given by Larken Rose, Betsy Summers, Lou Jasikoff, Mike Salvi, and Richard Schwarz. The presenters, myself included, weren't bad either.
