Conversation Culture

What's happening

This is a thorny topic, we may end up really in the weeds. In order that we have a fruitful discussion I have posted more resources than usual, I have divided them into 4 broad categories (rightwing viewpoint/leftwing viewpoint / rightwing solutions /leftwing solutions) and strongly encourage that if you have limited time, choose from the resources that conflict with your world-view.

* if you read no one else from this category, read this.
