One of the most unique efforts to emerge on this front is the Civility Project, spearheaded by Lanny Davis, former White House Counsel for Bill Clinton, and Mark Demoss, head of the largest evangelical PR firm in America. They are an unlikely pair, but they bring a refreshing message: we need to learn to disagree without being disagreeable. This hinges on three commitments:
- Civility in public discourse and behavior.
- Respect for others whether or not you agree with them.
- Standing against incivility.
What do you think about the cultural bent toward incivility and this effort to counter it?
