Rich Tafel, founder of the Log Cabin Republicans and Senior Fellow at the Institute for Cultural Evolution, took the stage today in a Politico forum panel at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. The Politico panel, titled Ruin or Renewal? The Future of the Republican Party, focused on some of the key issues ICE is working on. In the course of the discussion, Tafel emphasized that a new center-right coalition is emerging which will appeal to millennials while continuing to stand for free-market principles.
Tafel was joined on the panel by Jeff Roe, former campaign manager and senior strategist for Ted Cruz, and Katie Packer, partner at Burning Glass Consulting. The panel was moderated by Susan Glasser and Glenn Thrush of Politico.
Here’s a quote from Rich Tafel: “Republicans watching the collapse of the GOP should take heart because this disaster called Trump can actually give rise to the phoenix of a new party of innovation—a party that embraces evolved spiritual values and the power of socially conscious capitalism.”
If the panel becomes available as a podcast we will add that link here.

Most issues, like gun control, push directly against the values of one worldview or another, but it is interesting to find a stuck issue, like campaign finance reform, that is supported by all three major worldviews:
We’re now on week 7 of my 9-week course on Post-Progressive Politics. I’m pleased to say our 50 person group has gelled nicely—they’re asking tough questions and making great progress. It’s an honor to be with these fine folks every Wednesday night!
Wicked problems are so complex, they can’t be solved by the same level of thinking that created them. Regulating social media is a wicked problem that is begging for a post-progressive solution that can see & balance all the conflicting values involved.
