THE IDEA

THE IDEA

As in other times when the American ideal has been strained in the nation’s history – the Civil War, the Gilded Age, the 1960’s – today we are radically divided.
Many of us are concerned about the direction of our country and seek ways large and small to revitalize America’s civic culture. We want to re-validate our nation’s motto e pluribus unum (out of many, one).
To address our current situation, we need a movement that promotes the idea of advanced citizenship to match up to all the other ways in which our country is so advanced.
