Ethical Guidebook

A discussion of the difference between our personal values and our public ethics, how mature citizens can support both, and why our love for public ethics must trump our love for personal and group values when they conflict in the public space. Ethics offers a guidebook for evaluating public issues and finding multilateral solutions to endless cycles of values centric conflicts and unilateral violence.

An Opportunity for Thanksgiving

What we are giving the most Thanksgiving for this year, and the only Christmas present we need this year, is already on its way to the White House - an opportunity to refocus our energy and enthusiasm on the shared institutions, due process, multilateral oversight, and fair principles that help us live together a bit more peacefully and sustainably.
