The purpose of this blog is to provide commentary on some of the issues facing our society and our world, with an attempt at explaining my positions in a way that unites rather than divides. I hope to foster unity in helping people from all sides of the political spectrum understand those that fundamentally disagree with their worldview, rather than just confirm biases and further entrench ourselves in our political bubbles.

As you can probably tell with my opening statement, I tend to take a liberal bent on things. However I am open to challenge, I am open to being wrong, and I am open to learning. I hope you will respect this with me as I will with you.
