[P]eople do not arrive at their political positions by directly consulting their values to form a political position. For example, people rely to a great extent on the position of their political party in forming a position, independent of the content of that position. Also, people’s positions are often driven more by their reactions to what an issue symbolizes, even if this does not reflect a dispassionate analysis of the different political or moral values at stake….
The Politicus is a collaborative political community that facilitates content creation directly on the site. Our goal is to make the political conversation accessible to everyone.Any donations we receive will go into writer outreach. That could be advertising on Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit or person-to-person outreach on College campuses. Please help if you can:
