What Are The Big Ideas?

While we get organized here and raise the money to rebuild the site and pursue the next year’s projects, as an interim measure¬†we’ve decided to publish a “table of contents” of some of the major essays we’ve generated and documentation of events. While we’ve accumulated many, many essays since we launched, these writings form the foundational literature for¬†The Citizen Critic Project. We plan to update this regularly as the ideas evolve and take shape.
