Purpose of the Blog

I’ve had many interesting discussions with people on Facebook about politics, economic policy, technology and more. But that medium doesn’t foster thoughtful dialogue. I plan to use this blog to engage in deeper discussions with thoughtful people of many persuasions, hoping that through good dialogue with others, we can all gain deeper understanding of and more refined viewpoints on many topics.
