Third Saturday Seminar: political discussions in Montgomery County TX
Not only is our world interesting in the Chinese sense, but We the People of the world, like Rip van Winkle, are waking up after a long siesta. Obviously, the new instant media technology is one of the major factors in bringing this about. Not only do they recognize the injustice of their own situation, but they see there are many in the same boat and they also see that there are other places on the planet where people live much better lives.

*When the origin of the "Chinese saying" was researched, It soon became apparent there is no ancient Chinese saying or curse that translates into, "Our world is in interesting times" or "May you live in interesting times" However, probably you and I both feel our current times are "interesting" (to say the least) whether the Chinese ever said it or not.

Come, join the discussion! Let's see if there is hope!

Discourse: ready for a new discussion platform?
We'd like to raise the standard of discussion on the web through better forum software. The word “discourse” kept coming up when we discussed the problem, and it captures the essence of what we want to do. We could build something closer to a Civilized Discourse Construction Kit, freely available to everyone in the world.

‘The Righteous Mind,’ by Jonathan Haidt -
Why Won’t They Listen?‘The Righteous Mind,’ by Jonathan Haidt. You’re smart. You’re liberal. You’re well informed. You think
conservatives are narrow-minded. You can’t understand why working-class Americans vote Republican. You figure they’re being
duped. You’re wrong.

This isn’t an accusation from the right. It’s a friendly warning from Jonathan Haidt, a social psychologist at the University of Virginia who, until 2009, considered himself a partisan liberal. In “The -Righteous Mind,” Haidt seeks to enrich liberalism, and political discourse generally, with a deeper awareness of human nature.

At, our mission is to find and promote evidence-based methods for increasing political civility.

By civility we do NOT mean politeness, decorum, agreement, bipartisanship, or unity. We think disagreement and debate are good things. We think America is well served when political parties represent different viewpoints and then compete vigorously to recruit voters to their side. Civility as we pursue it is the ability to disagree with others while respecting their sincerity and decency. We believe this ability is best fostered by indirect methods (changing contexts, payoffs, and institutions), rather than by direct methods (such as pleading with people to be more civil, or asking people to sign civility pledges).
