So far ICE has been funded by generous philanthropic contributions from our friends and associates. But now that we have officially become a 501c3 nonprofit, we are ready to try raising funds for our polarization campaign through the new medium of crowdfunding.
Rather than just asking for contributions, we are tying our Indiegogo project to a series of teleconference “Caucus Calls” that will allow people to participate in bringing forward a vision of the Future Left and Future Right, as described in our white paper: Depolarizing the American Mind.
This crowdfunding project will thus allow us to “go public” with ICE’s larger polarization campaign and engage our supporters in a variety of meaningful activities associated with the campaign.
Please register for the upcoming Caucus Call, scheduled for Saturday, October 25th beginning at 10:00 AM Pacific Time.

Has progressive postmodernism emerged as a historically significant new worldview comparable to modernity and traditionalism? Social psychologists and political scientists can’t seem to see it clearly. If social science existed in 1790, would it have detected the Enlightenment?
Post-progressivism can help progressive culture mature and evolve by extending its caring & inclusive values to include the concerns and commitments of modernists and traditionalists. And progressives can thus evolve by using *cultural intelligence* to affirm our interdependence.
By eschewing the horizontal continuum of left and right, post-progressivism is charting a vertical dimension of normative growth leading to a more evolved form of politics. This strategy for ameliorating polarization works by synthesizing values from across the political spectrum
Read my new article in Areo Magazine: “Towards a Post-Progressive Political Perspective.” This 1,200 word article discusses the goals of post-progressive politics and outlines its method of “cultural intelligence.” https://areomagazine.com/2020/05/20/towards-a-post-progressive-political-perspective/
