Re-seeding The Center

I'm concerned about whether a rational two-party system can survive.

Two feet make us mobile. Two eyes let us see depth. Two parties - if they meet at the center - convey the best ideas from all directions into the decision-making process.

Meeting at the center depends on agreeing on what is true, and on what is good. If a center could be defined by asking what principles we all have in common and what facts we all agree on, perhaps we can build from there. A majority on all sides might agree on...

The sacredness of life.

The right to autonomy.

The right to associate equally with others.

The right to build a common good.
