We are told our times are horribly divided. And it is impolite, or even dangerous, to bring up politics. There is a sense that it is better to be apathetic toward today’s most important issues than to speak one’s mind. The Civil Squid was launched with the following convictions:
- all are obligated to have opinions about relevant societal topics,
- no connection should be broken or prevented due to political disagreement, and
- no idea is so deplorable that it does not warrant a response.
This is a site for civil discourse and analyses of current events and politics. Each instance of differing opinions should focus our intentions and inch us closer to bridging the divide.
