About

Thank goodness for idealistic folk who strive to create a better and more equitable world. Their work is cut out for them since human society, like our biosphere, is an extraordinarily complex system where every action is littered with unintended consequences. With the best of intentions, policies can exacerbate existing conditions or create wholly new ones. This requires us to balance passion for justice and change, with critical thinking and humility. History is replete with examples of 'perfect' societies that turned out to be totalitarian and very cruel.
 
I value living in an imperfect world where we strive untiringly to be intelligent, 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, with great effort, 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 vital work that questions and hopes to enlighten. You will find posters, videos, podcasts, webinars and invitations to 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. After taking democracy, freedom and human rights for granted the last few decades, 
everything is up for grabs, all over again. Even as climate change is threatening our very existence and open and free societies are threatened by the rise of tribal and xenophobic forces of the Right, Liberals and the Progressive Left are dividing us even further apart on the basis of group 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.
