There aren’t that many causes of our conflicts, but there are many conflicts that arise because of those few causes, and the culmination of these conflicts threatens to tear us apart – to the detriment of all of us past, present, and future.
( … A moral conflict (why)… (the problem). (our moral hierarchies and intuitions differ and so our group strategies differ… techologyhas delivered everyone to the same proximity to diversity is … so understanding and accomodating differences in wants … given our increase in agency… we faciliate producing different moral hierarchies as long as you pay for it. A. moral hierarchy is a set of priorities. )
We’re Repeating the Founding Fathers’ Demand for Reform. And it will work.
The problems of the age are solvable. It’s only a matter of enough of us choosing to work together – to solve them together.
THE SIMPLE VERSION OF OUR PROPOSED REFORMS:
Because, if we don’t solve the crisis of our age, we’ll have a civil war where everyone loses. Because neither end of the spectrum will tolerate rule by the other – because we consider one another immoral, and that gap is unbridgeable, because in post-agrarian modernity we have no incentive to compromise on morals – just the opposite: we are free not to compromise.
We are a Think Tank – an independent academic organization that performs research in human cognition, human behavior, human cooperation, and development of constitutions, legislation, social and economic policy.
Think tanks were secure ‘safe spaces’ that evolved for military research during the early 20th century’s wars. In the postwar period think tanks evolved to include economic, policy, and legal organizations that were free from the limitations resulting from the politicization of the academy because of its institutional capture by the marxist, neomarxist, posmodernists, and their adoption of behavioral and social pseudosciences.
We work to end political conflict by lawfully limiting ourselves to truthful, reciprocal discourse, negotiation, and policy exchange. We are not affiliated with any party. We seek to satisfy the ambitions those who share moral and intellectual honesty by the restoration of sciences, a reformation of the law applying the sciences, resulting in a return to cooperation across the spectrum of our differences.
We work in English, and we’ve directed most of our attention to the Anglo and Eurosphere. But our work is scientific, and universal in application, and for the benefit of all humanity.

Humans differ by universal, collective, and individual moral sentiments. We’re offering a value neutral means for people to communicate across their biases and to bring about variations in polities that produce the commons each community desires.
The Problem: The natural human resistance and institutional lag, as our law, science, and technology drags us through the restoration of European cultural innovation, adaptation, and evolution; the counter rebellions by each civilization, class, and sex to resist the burden of adaptation and the responsibilty it imposes; the present rebellion against responsibility by infantilization, the insufficiency of our law, institutions, and policy, to assist us in overcoming the stresses of our rate of adaptation: largely by the failure of religion, education, and training.
The Plan: A complete explanation of the crisis, the solutions to the crisis; and the activism to bring the solutions in to being.
The Science: The completion of the scientific method; the simplification of the science into traditional philosophy, and the application of the science to history, explaining civilizational differences and their consequences for humanity.
The Law: The application of the science as the Natural Law of Cooperation; the legal, constitutional, institutional, and policy reforms constructed as constitutional amendments.
The Technology: A universal application for private, commercial, social, and governmental orgnization, operation, measurement, and transparency. Including an AI that tests the truthfulness, morality, and legality of political discourse, negotiation, and action.
Education: Education and training of a generation of scholars, judges, lawyers, legislators, teachers, activists, laymen in the Natural Law of Cooperation, the constitution and policies, and changes to institutions and disciplines that result.
Activism: Organization of people, groups, movements, in support of social, political, and legal initiatives to incrementally or rapidly bring about substantive change.
We offer a solution for the good of all regardless of political bias: a set of demands establishing that solution, a plan of action to bring about that solution, a means of organization to implement that solution, software for governing under that solution, and a moral justification for demanding change.
