What is Practicing Politics?

If the last year has shown us anything, it’s that we need to take a long, hard look at the way we practice our politics. The adversarial, aggresive, winner-takes-all nature of our current political culture not only creates division and polarization, but allows the many legitimate issues we face as a society to go unaddressed.

But how do we change this?

As with any other issue, the solution it involves a) understanding the problem, b) exploring potentialy solutions, and c) finding ways to put them into action.

That is the purpose of Practicing Politics — to form a communinty of people interested in finding new ways to engage in politics.

What Content We Accept

This publication is nonpartisan. To that end, it’s fine for you to possess your own political beliefs and affiliations — in fact, I’d be surprised if you didn’t! However, these should not be the sole focus of your articles. We are instead focusing on the nature of our political cutlure(s) overall, it’s strengths and weaknessess, and ways to address them.

Articles in this publication can touch on themes like:

  • Political culture
  • Polarization
  • Government reform
  • Conflict resolution
  • and more…

I would encourage anyone interesting in contributing to read a couple of our articles to get a sense of the content we are interested in.

Other than that, feel free to direct any other questions you may have to this email as well. Look forward to hearing from you!
