Common ground requires honest debate from all sides. We live in a time where “honesty” in anything is very hard to find, especially where our media and political structures are involved. It would be nice to have a public forum without bias that would allow the honest discussion of the various viewpoints. A “real debate” on the issues. By real debate I do not mean the debates that we have seen on our televisions for this recent campaign season. Anyone who has belonged to a debating club or studied debating and how it should occur would never use these TV debates as examples of “real debating”. An informed public is the best avenue toward relieving the divide amongst us. Education through unbiased and honest debate would be an avenue towards bridging that divide. What we have now are lies and prejudice of opinion that is encouraged by a media that fills its time and pages with overt dishonesty that goes unrecognized by an underinformed public. In these modern times it is no longer acceptable to be uninformed. We are living in an information age, let us make it work for us, not against us.
