Something Important Is Dying: Reclaiming the Democratic Virtues of Moderation, Civility, and Compromise

Setup

Beneath the tumble of day-to-day politics — the anger and crude attacks, the polarization and zero-sum thinking — vital democratic legacies are being squandered. To rebuild the moral and intellectual infrastructure of democracy, we need to reclaim the good name of essential public virtues such as moderation, civility, and compromise — once widely admired and praised, now often dismissed as weakness or even betrayal. This session will focus on where we are and what needs to be done to repair the ethical fabric of our humanity, with a focus on some practical steps that might be taken.
