Is our “democratic consciousness” defined, expressed or satisfied simply, by voting every four years? Where are we standing at, as citizens if we have succeeded so far in producing intelligent means of communication, but we haven’t developed the ability to discover who we really are and where we really want to go, not only as citizens-individuals but as political beings of the same societies, habitants of the same earth?
The 21st Century is the transformation time for the [re]defining and practicing of Democracy. What is needed in the years ahead? Ultimely we hope to improve our patterns of thinking, our language, invest on values, creativity and courage and take seriously our role as citizens in liberating our voices and our visions for our common future. Where will strong civic understanding be forged in this new world? How will voices come together to envision new realities? These are questions that should encourage us to investigate new models of collective thinking and acting. Structured Democratic Dialogue represents exactly this new model of scientific thinking, language and liberation.
