Many of our political discussions don’t ever seem to go anywhere. I present my belief, and the facts that back that up. Someone else states their opposing belief, and the facts that back that up. And then we argue over whose right. These discussions tend to lead towards entrenching ourselves even deeper into our own positions. I believe that I’m even more right than before, and that this “opponent” must be converted or defeated. Nonviolent Communication can provide a new way to have these political conversations that leads to more cooperation and seeing the world through the eyes of the other.
KindCommunication.org is a project by a close friend of Wiki World Order, Alex Leach. WWO fully supports the study, practice, and teaching of non-violent communication as one of the core solutions which already exists.
