How best to resist the slide of our country into tribal politics?
During the coming years, citizens of the US will need to work to keep our basic civil liberties. We need to form new institutions to counter corruption, machine politics and propaganda, figuring out as we go what those new institutions will look like and how they'll work in the new environment we're in.
Start by getting some understanding of how politics and civil society work. TODO add to this list:
- Francis Fukuyama is a good start.
Supporting existing orgs won't be enough, but it's an important start:
- Sunlight Foundation
- Southern Poverty Law Center
- Common Cause
- Public Citizen
- Anti-Defamation League
- League of Women Voters
- Electronic Frontier Foundation
- Center for Media and Democracy?
Question: Are there any organizations in the clean government space that are truly non-partisan and respected by reasonable people on both sides of the aisle?
