Do you believe that respectful discussions with people who agree/disagree with you is the way to build a public policy that benefits all?

Absolutely. Acknowledging our agreements and building on what works at the moment allows us to collaborate for the better! Knowing where our disagreements lie and being able to continue the discussion while accepting the differences of opinions serves to broaden our horizons and make us more flexible! Everyone sees a piece and it takes all of us to get to the best whole.

What aspect of the prevailing political culture/climate is the most upsetting to you? who / what do you hold responsible?

We are still trying to preserve a system of thought that applied to our parents and grandparents, and as conservatively as I was raised, I don't believe that we can move forward with these ways of thinking. We've moved beyond a social, economic, and cultural climate into something else, which remains to be seen, but we can't sit around and hope that everything is going to return to what used to be 'status quo.' Holding our breath isn't going to help. We need to change. Adapt. And move forward. I hold the human unwillingness to changes as a cause… there are a whole host of who/what's that should be held responsible. Too many to list here, imo.

Introduction

Hi! 33 years old and exploring this life in any way possible. Looking for new perspectives and new friends who think (and aren't limited to the drink.)
