For the last few months I've been reflecting on How to Prevent a Civil War.

Here's why I think we need to act:
- It is in the avowed interests of multiple powerful actors -- both inside and outside of the US -- to foment widespread discord, confusion, and animosity.
- The logical conclusion of widespread discord, confusion, and animosity is civil war.
- The people working on this have lots of resources and effective technology (ie AI chatbots) at their disposal.

Basically, in absence of our concerted actions, things are going to get worse.

The most effective tool I have come to so far is conversation.

Honest, deep, vulnerable, heart-opening conversation.

This podcast is V1 of a model I'm playing with that I'd like to try out.
