00:42:40 RL asks Prof. Gibson Winter (GW) about the main point of the book. GW answers that we created a high technology culture, people are given the status by belonging to it. To be free is first to belong, to be counted in, to have a guaranteed income, or some kind of assurance to belong to that society. This is a starting point.
00:43:35 RL asks, so there are two different senses of freedom. The old one is lack of freedom.
00:44:54 An unidentified female voice says "I don't see young people today see freedom as a goal. In the process of being free, we should be careful we don't take on another yoke under the name of freedom."
00:45:27 GW says he sees two levels of the problems: organizational level of freedom, and cultural meaning of freedom in the society.
00:46:43 All guest speakers continue to discuss about organizational level of freedom. GW says there are two aspects of what we need to be free. We need to belong, and we need to have a voice.
00:48:24 An unidentified man asks why is there change from the old sense of freedom to the new freedom. He speaks of John Adams as an example to explain the idea. GW and guests continue to discuss the issues of freedom.

Logger's note: An unidentified female singer performs eight songs before live audience. She [probably] accompanies herself on guitar. The timeline for Side 2 (a duplicate of Side 1) is slightly different.
LC engineer's note: The tape appears to have been recorded on a four-track (multitrack) machine due to the way the tracks are organized. As a result all files from this tape were from one side of the tape, as opposed to a true quarter-track tape, which would need to be flipped to play back the other side. Both files contain the same content; it is not a mistake in the transfer.
