In this 18 page illustrated lecture text, Steve McIntosh provides a simplified and accessible description of ICE’s approach to political evolution. After the 2016 election, it has become clear that hyper-partisan political polarization is a symptom of a larger cultural divide that currently afflicts American society.

The lecture was originally given on July 15, 2017 at the summer symposium of Keystone College, in La Plume, Pennsylvania.

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.
