The Institute for Cultural Evolution does not officially endorse candidates for public office. But as the president of this organization I feel obligated to express my personal political opinion on the upcoming election.
While I acknowledge that there are many people of good sense and good faith who continue to support Donald Trump, I cannot assent to his leadership. My considered assessment is that Trump’s apparent disregard for the truth, coupled with his generally untrustworthy character, disqualify him for the office of the presidency.
Even though I’m a registered Democrat, I still have doubts about Joe Biden and cannot wholeheartedly endorse his candidacy. Nevertheless, I find the prospect of another four years of the Trump administration simply unacceptable.
For me, this is not a question of policy. As Michael Steele, former chairman of the Republican National Committee, writes: “This election is not about issues or policies. Rather, it is about the course of a nation and the character of her people reflected in the leader they choose.”
I thus urge American readers of this blog to vote against Trump and for Biden on November 3rd.

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.
