Subject: Do you know of a myth or meme about finding accord?
Date: Wed, Apr 30, 2014

Hi everyone,

In the absence of a political structure that gives people seeking accord a "home," everyone is forced to return to their "default" position (Liberal or Conservative) when it's time to seek information on a specific issue and make a decision.

So I've been looking for founding myths that could lay the groundwork Transpartisanship. I have only found one with any cultural power: King Arthur's Roundtable.

If you have another, or know of a current meme that speaks to overcoming differences, please let me know.

Thanks to Bill Shenken, who reminded me of this when he wrote: "I have gone from being very liberal to being more conservative back to being more liberal."
