“Where left and right come front and center to face the music and dance together, to turn the funk into function and leave the junk at the junction”
Despite what we hear and see on the news, we have a deeply UNITED body politic in America. Whether people identify as progressive, conservative, independent or “other”, the vast majority of Americans believe our current pay-to-play political system doesn’t represent them. Particularly in the election of 2016, where the candidate named “Neither of the Above” would have won in a landslide, citizens are feeling disheartened, discouraged and disenfranchised.
The elephant — and donkey — in the living room is the growing awareness that neither of the two major parties has the people’s interest at heart, nor the good of the commonwealth for that matter. The system is incapable of fixing itself, and so what is required is an “intervention” by the entity that our founding documents, The Declaration of Independence and the Preamble to the Constitution declare is the “sovereign” of our republic: we, the people.

An Interview With Author and Mediation Expert Mark Gerzon
“Instead of the current tug-of-war pulling us apart, we need a tug-of-peace where we all pull together in the same direction.” — Swami Beyondananda
At the most politically contentious time since the Civil War, can you imagine what it would take to “reunite America”? You can’t? Well our guest this week, Mark Gerzon, can. He has written a book called the Reunited States of America, and his life work for the past half-century has been bringing all sides together in fruitful conversation.
Mark Gerzon is the president of Mediators Foundation and is one of the key architects of the field of global leadership and an experienced facilitator in high-conflict zones.
