I started The Understanding Project in 2010 in response to the increase in strife and hateful rhetoric I was seeing in the news and hearing from ordinary people I knew. I aimed to promote civility, compromise, pragmatism, unity, tolerance, education, and understanding. In 2013, I stopped writing mostly because I no longer had the time. I didn’t have the time to research every detail of every issue to know what people were talking about and I didn’t have time to keep checking for comments and carry on a conversation. Half the comments were from robots anyways. This is why I disabled comments. In 2016, I began writing a little bit, but I’m still not up to checking my responses all the time. I have too many other interests. I’m not really back. Below I link to some of my best posts from the blog likely to remain relevant through the ages. These will remain as a resource for those who wish to understand how others think about politics and to supplement some of the arguments I make in my book, The Nutcase Across The Street. If you wish, you can still read the full archives on the blog page.
Please read my posts and be sure to check out my book, The Nutcase Across The Street!
