Perspectives on the future of humanity and the ongoing work of reclaiming our civic life and rebuilding our democracy.

Why are we here?

Together, to explore a new conversation about the future of humanity and democracy in an America that is safer, more free, and more just. To believe in a future better than our past. To imagine that future with clarity and articulate it with conviction in the hopes of leading America in a better direction.

Ideas and analysis on media and information, culture and meaning, politics, economics, and government — and how we find our way.
