My new political book, Developmental Politics, is now complete and will be published by Paragon House on March 1. Now that the writing is done, I’m turning back to the work of the Institute for Cultural Evolution. In the next few weeks we will be launching an exciting new Character Development Exercise (adapted from Appendix B of Developmental Politics), which will be similar in format to our popular Worldview Questionnaire.
This new online exercise is called “Your Portrait of the Good.” The exercise asks you to reflect on your ideals and what you really care about. This 15 minute process helps you discern your highest personal virtues. By answering the exercise’s 10 questions you create a personalized chart like the sample shown above. Your finished Portrait of the Good virtues chart can then be printed-out and used as a practice tool for personal development. Thinking deeply about your core virtues is an important part of a virtue practice, and this exercise is designed to help you do just that.
We will be sending out an email announcement to our list as soon as the exercise is ready. So if you’re not already a member of our email list, please sign up now in the black area at the bottom of this page.

"Nuclear is too expensive and we can't solve the waste problem!"
"We can run the whole country on variable renewables eazypeazy. All we have to do is build a massive low cost national supergrid!"
Why again does anyone still take @NaomiOreskes seriously? https://www.latimes.com/opinion/story/2019-09-11/climate-change-false-assumptions-nuclear-power-fossil-fuels
"Not matter what good news we are seeing, [we think] that things are bad and they are going to get worse ... there just seems to be a kind of entrenched pessimism," @carter_phipps of @InstituteforCE says.
Do you agree?
