We wanted to take a moment to help everyone understand the mission of the blog. We hope you’ve been enjoying the content -- consider this a (very short) guide to getting the most out of it.
Whenever you’re reading a topical post, know we’re hoping to do the following:
Challenge your assumptions and conceptions on tough political issues
Get you to think more deeply about why you believe and feel what you do
Get you curious about learning more about the issue!
Stimulate conversation on the comment threads and forum that leads to greater learning and understanding with people that don’t necessarily agree with us
Give you great topics to discuss with your friends and help you start practicing considerate discourse!
Next time you read a topical post by Something to Consider, make sure you pause for a moment before closing it and moving on to your next social media post about bacon or cats.
Next time you see a post from us, pause and consider: how can I challenge my own beliefs about this? How will I talk about this issue with my friends differently the next time it comes up?
