Seven Ground Rules for Political Discourse™
Video from Prior Events
Well, I’ve hit the jackpot. I’ve actually found several people (of wildly different political persuasions, I might add) that agree with my desire to see the return of intelligent and respectful political debates and they are willing to volunteer their time to see if this idea can generate an actual event. We’ve come up with a concept whereby panelists will understand the Seven Ground Rules fully and agree to abide by them. The audience will vote to declare a “winner” but the criteria will not only be the panelist’s power of persuasion, but whether or not they were successful in modeling the Ground Rules. We will be selling tickets for a nominal fee and all proceeds will go to the charity of the winner of the debate. We still have a lot of work to do to get the event going, but I am not alone.
