The current state of social engagement, public and private, in our society, requires urgent attention. An observation of the discourse around us results in three apparent issues.

Second, the expression of differing values creates enemies of the “right” and “wrong” person rather than opportunities for mutual respect. Third, and perhaps the most important, is the general lack of discourse itself.
