One thing I’d love to do over the next few years is to be a moderator of a series of debates. I love intellectual challenges and enjoy hearing different points of view. It would be great to get public intellectuals with various points of view in a room and find out where there might be common ground.
It’s sad that in 2016 public discourse has turned into shouting matches.
Take some time out and check out this debate. It is a classic, and it is fascinating.
