Wow, Olivia!!! brilliant article... this sentence in particular, along with the rest of what you've written here, is such a powerful call for new forms of shared meaning-making...

really resonates with one of my favorite descriptions of deliberation 2.0 -- Dr. Debra's Hawhee''s "deliberation as the practice of imagining shared futures together".

And, it resonates enormously with what I am hearing, as I gather stories from the agile Citizens' Councils in Vorarlberg... the subject of my doctoral dissertation.

would love to stay in touch.

all best wishes,
