Welcome to Curt’s View

In this time of strife, conflict brewed by disinformation, I believe we should have more communication, not less. We can’t fold our cards, retire to our bunkers, and succumb to the dark forces that seek to divide us. To that end, we should discuss our political views and engage in social commentary.

The intention of this blog is to connect, to reignite dialogue between the foxholes, and to recognize and unearth our shared humanity. It is only by communication that barriers can be shattered, offering paths back to common ground, disinformation vacuumed out.

“Being taught to avoid talking about politics and religion has led to a lack of understanding of politics and religion. What we should have been taught was how to have a civil conversation about a difficult topic.” ~ Ryan Fournier
