I think the most powerful and realistic outcome of creating this site is to generate messages that we activists can use in the real world. The content resources generated as part of that message making process then can be called upon by members and the public alike.It is not the consciousness of men that determines their existence, but their social existence that determines their consciousness.
Karl Marx's 1859 Preface to the Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy
The message making process comes out of deliberation. Deliberation comes out of a process secondary to open discussion and designed to keep the discussion civil and constructive by taking disputes into another arena, a resolution process space rather than the destructive and unproductive 'flame room' many discussion sites fill this existential void in effective discourse with.
To truly get anything done in the near term real world, we must recognize and try to craft our messages for and at the intersection of racial, labor, and single-issue efforts. That means methodically making success of our disagreements, even as we understand consensus is seldom possible.
