Common Ground – “Very few would disagree with the assertion that our current system has us headed for a disaster. However not everyone agrees on what that disaster will look like, and it’s virtually impossible to get people to agree on the solution. As a result forming a unified front to face these challenges has been next to impossible.
The Common Ground is an approach designed to deal with this issue.
This approach begins with a simple and undeniable premise: that there is no way that anyone is going to convince everyone else to accept one unified belief system. Liberals will never convert the conservatives, and the conservatives will never convert the liberals. We’re never going to all agree on the wedge issues, and it’s not even realistic to expect that people will learn to discuss these topics in a calm, rational manner any time soon.
Therefore the only way that we can hope to unify in the face of a common threat is to bring it down to the lowest common denominator. What can we use as our unifying principle, what is our common ground?”

We unify against these wars and we start cooperating rather than working against each other. This isn’t a pipe dream, or a utopian fantasy. The left and the right did unify in 2013 against the Syrian war and we succeeded in pushing it back. The mainstream media claimed that the war was put on hold due to Russia’s diplomacy, but the reality of the matter is that the U.S. government didn’t want to acknowledge that they were losing control of the population.
Those of us who call ourselves the Common Ground were part of that push and we will be there pushing back again when they attempt to take us into the next war. If you stand against these wars then you are one of us. We don’t have a formal membership list, nor do you have to get permission to join. We are a distributed network, a decentralized movement comprised of individuals and organizations unified by an idea and a commitment to non-violent resistance. If that idea resonates with you then help us build that network.
