A Policy Think Tank
The resources that are available to use in the effort to improve cultures certainly include our knowledge of history. Knowing our history provides much wisdom. Useful resources also certainly include what living adults have directly witnessed. In cases where the implications of history remain debatable, facts and valid inferences gleaned from the here and now
can be invaluable. Your own experience has more value than you might suspect.
There are many categories of strife and opportunity. Our network approaches these challenges from within a specific frame of mind: Policies must enhance the wellbeing and happiness of every living person. This does not mean that new policies must start benefiting every individual and group at the very same time. It means that new policies must not disregard or devalue the wellbeing and happiness of any fraction of the population of living people.
Does your sense of justice include revenge? Do you consider hate an adaptive cognitive function in the present era? Can you perceive the disorders of consciousness that have been socially acceptable up until now? Can you bring yourself to read, hear, or see a proof of a statement that you rather not believe is true?
Do all of your friends know the difference between a description and a formal definition? Can they tell a mere assertion from a valid proof? Do they commit logical fallacies?
Do you care what happens to your great grand children or the people of the world ten seconds after you die? Are you simply waiting for the afterlife? Do you believe that your knowledge is useless to those who survive you?
Are you intolerant of people who have beliefs different from your own? Can you work with them to limit suffering?
Can you see that the characteristics of a culture are often responsible for the miseries experienced within that culture? Do you know the principle cause of multi-generational wars?
Are people going to be less warlike in the future?
Do you love humanity?
