Brief Update

leave a comment »

Hey folks,

Just wanted to give a heads up that I’ll be slowing down on Mesocosm for a while. I’m going to shift focus to Mesoscope, my political blog. It is not something I particularly want to make a central focus of my attention, but under the circumstances I feel that I have no choice.

The purpose of Mesoscope is to provide tools for opposing the extremely destructive policies that have been embraced by the Trump administration, and supporting efforts to construct a positive alternative vision for society.

My primary political commitments are: 1) rational, evidence-based discourse is the legitimate basis for political consensus, 2) political power must be rooted in democratic norms and procedures, and 3) human society must be organized in terms of a shared understanding of universal basic rights.
