Welcome to the agora 2.0...

Rhetorical Answers started as a personal commonplace book in 2010. Seven years later, that pet project has evolved into what I like to call "a commonplace blog". I see it as a clearing space and safe haven for people to find open-sourced inspiration, ideas, information, community, and connection. Anything to move human conversation "forwards and upwards". 

The Agora will be the front page of Rhetorical Answers. Here, I will make a daily question & answer post aggregated from around the internet to serve as a starting node for accessible yet richer conversation to begin and deeper investigation to branch off from. I want to try and capture the original spirit of the agora as a open marketplace for ideas, but with a "lighthouse principle": regardless of credentials, class, or creed of the OPlet the clearest and most concise and creative answers be heard first. In that sense, if we must have anchors, this is a signal-to-noise experiment in elevating the future of public discourse, on how will we moderate or triage or find a new voicing for human conversation

Seriously, I am grateful for any of your help. My hope is that one day I can stop everything and just curate this online heartcraft around-the-clock and be able to donate the first $3,500 that comes in every month toward some collective, crowd-sourced goodwill. And stay ad-free. It's ambitious, but I think doable. The rest goes towards throwing wood into the hearth, and buildingdeeper, more creative and connected agora.

Cheers,
J. Amrine
