I will be posting more sporadically until March 2011 (perhaps an average of 2 or 3 new posts per week). As always, others are welcome and encouraged to post. Please try to do so in the spirit of the blog (which is committed to exploring how best to address social problems as a polity -i.e., through public policy, which inevitably implicates the agency of government, though in what ways and to what degree is certainly open to legitimate debate- rather than whether to address social problems as a polity). Please be assured that, as long as that is your intention, that your contribution, whatever it is, is greatly appreciated.

In the three and a half months since I started this blog, however, I have published over 200 posts and pages exploring various aspects of our social institutional landscape, almost all of which are of more enduring relevance than posts on typically news-oriented political blogs. Please peruse them through the topics box, or the search engine, or by visiting my recently updated Catalogue of Selected Posts ( You will find posts on a variety of topics. If you haven’t yet, please read A Proposal: The Politics of Kindness, which describes an integration of analytical thought, cognitively targeted communication, and non-partisan community action in service not only to cultivating broader and deeper popular support for policies based on reason and goodwill, but also improving the quality of such policies, and promoting direct non-partisan mutual assistance in our communities.

In the meantime, look for a few up-coming posts in the next couple of weeks, including Politics & Social Change, The Alternative to Idolatries, and A Political Christmas Carol.

Happy Holidays, Everyone!
