Just as none of us is exempt from pain and sorrow, there can be no society without injustice and inequality. History is littered with examples of 'perfect' societies that turned out to be totalitarian. I value living in an imperfect world where we strive to be humane and caring. I value critical thinking, dialogue, creativity, humor, intelligent dissent and the constant striving for truth. Most of all I appreciate the capacity of the human mind to grasp complex reality. Complacency and cynicism are unworthy of us as homo sapiens; we should be able to do better.

Here on Meta-Culture's page you will have access to the work we do to inquire into our civilizational values. You will find posters, videos, podcasts, webinars and invitations to DemoSapien events such as discussions, book groups, training programs and workshops. This is what I do full time and your contributions will help me continue to do this work.

A short note on why we do this work:
I founded Meta-Culture, a thinking and human engagement studio, in 2005 to help resolve conflicts at the community, organizational and national level.


Today everything that we have taken for granted about freedom and individual rights is up for grabs again. Even as Liberal Democracy is threatened by intolerant forces on the Right, the Left is dividing us even further apart on the basis of identity. We are collectively destroying the most tolerant (and progressive) political system in human history. Given this, we at Meta-Culture are committed to bringing our best selves to strengthen the culture of democracy. We cannot be sanguine about our future.
