The increasing polarization of our political and social discourse — combined with the impact of social and mass media — is separating us into opposing and strident factions:

  • Differing paradigms — social, political, moral or religious — lead us to see the world in vastly different terms.
  • Fear, frustration and anger — openly expressed or under the surface — further alienate us and lead to intolerance, resentment and lack of understanding.
  • Labeling, judgments, blame and criticism further wall us apart.
  • We increasingly define our relationships by what separates us, rather than what we have in common.

The result — our communications with others are breaking down.

Do you agree that we need to:

  • Keep these differences from becoming irreconcilable?
  • Find ways to engage one another — with understanding, openness and acceptance?
  • And that, if we don't do so, our discourse will continue to deteriorate?

If so, we invite you to join us in San Diego in January to explore positive and productive ways in which we can engage others in this world of shifting paradigms.
