American politics is sharply polarized. Many Americans feel demoralized, and question whether the country can rise to meet monumental challenges like climate change.
What will it take for our politics to effectively transition into the very different world of the 21st-century, one with pervasive digital technologies and increasing global integration?
America needs a new set of ideas in order to break free from the constraints of the 20th-century ideologies still dominating both political parties. We need innovative ideas that will take advantage of powerful new tools and approaches that fit the changing realities of the decades ahead. Americans need to see that innovators are working on big ideas, and that these ideas point toward a more promising future.
