Since our last post, Steve McIntosh and Jeff Salzman have participated in three Post-Progressive Inquiries on the Daily Evolver Podcast. Post-Progressive Inquiries are conversations exploring how post-progressivism’s emerging cultural and political perspective can honor and synthesize the best aspects of America’s three major worldviews: modernism, traditionalism, and progressivism. It is our hope that these conversations, and the new approach that they advance, can help to reconcile America’s stark political divide and bring peace to the culture war.

Polarity #4 is MERCY & JUSTICE. Mercy for the individual becomes unjust without concern for the good of the whole. And to be truly virtuous, justice must be balanced with care for each person.
Polarity #3 is COMPETITION & COOPERATION. One without the other can become problematic. But when both of these are brought together in a mutually correcting relationship that provides for both *challenge and support,* the value-creating potential of each side is maximized.
Polarity #2 is REAL & IDEAL. Each pole needs the other. Realism alone can lead to a cynical acceptance of a dysfunctional status quo. And unrealistic idealism can result in ineffectual wishful thinking. But through mutual co-correction they can fortify our power to improve things
In this new article by Carter Phipps, he asks where 50 years of "I'll do me and you do you" has gotten us.
This tweet is the first in a series of our favorite positive-positive interdependent polarities: LIBERTY & EQUALITY. These two values need each other to maximize their value creating capacity. Through a dynamic relationship of challenge and support, each pole trues-up the other.
