The Conversation Movement
In the course of the last decade an observer of the mode of discourse in our various societal groups and communities was able to observe the emergence of new approaches to intentional communication. This emergent mode has several designations, such as: Dialogue, consensus-seeking conversation, thinking together, and searching together. It seems to me that these modes of intentional social communication modes are, on the one hand, reactions to the ever degrading and hostile political discourse and, on the other, they represent an increasing yearning for civility, mutual respect, and dignity in our social discourse, and they are preferred modes of searching for common ground.
