    It was in 1787 during a stifling hot Philadelphia summer that a large number of passionate Americans with wildly differing views, agendas, backgrounds and opinions came together to write (what I, at least, would consider to be) the greatest document ever written by Man.

    This was back in the days when communication and collaboration were considered positive things, back when we felt that something good and creative and NEW could come from working together.

    Now that communication and collaboration have given way to tribalism and separation, what do you think America looks like going forward? How do we manifest creativity and new ideas without communication and collaboration?

    Usually when I pose a question in an OP I also offer my answer. I don't have an answer. I don't know.

    Indoctrination...has been going on for years.

    Future looks bleak due to the criminals running the Empire from the Imperial City.

    But I intend to party like its 1999.

    The founders shared a common vision.

    Do we any longer share a common vision of our future? Can we when a significant portion of the population resists the idea of "we"?

    Nothing has changed in that regard.

    Is there a point to that comment? Karl Marx was very much aware that the people in the picture represented the ruling class of society.

    We can NOT have collaboration/communication, as long as politicians govern by polls, and polls are affected by lies. (by the way, I am in Florida, and this is still strong Trump country)

    This is why, no matter what anyone thinks, this Russian collusion story is the "come to Jesus" moment for both political entities. No matter which way this goes, it is going to prove that one side or the other is/was using untoward methods to win a national election, and some media was complicit; either the MSM, or the conservative media.

    There has never in our lifetime, been such opposing positions on facts in evidence, and only one side can win this thing. The worst thing that could ever happen, is for Americans NOT to get the answers they deserve on this one! These answers are going to determine the direction of this country for years to come, and know what-------->the answers are already created, nothing can change what actually happened. One of the political parties has basically broken the social compact with the citizens, and once we find out which one it was, the other is going to rule this country for at least the next 8 to 12 years. We will be basically a one party country for that amount of time, and there will be no need for communication/collaboration, as what that party wants will happen!

    The common vision is embodied in the Constitution. That is the national agreement. Abrogate it, and the nation will disintegrate.

    Those who seek to "fundamentally change" it outside of the mandated process do not share the common vision, and are free to go elsewhere.
