“Abundants and Moderates share a fundamental intuition that our current hyper-partisan political set up of ‘us vs. them’ isn’t how most people think about most problems. We believe there are many ‘commonsense’ policy outcomes if only our political system could reach them. ‘Commonsense’ is a word we hear a lot in politics — it’s popular with voters — but it is viewed skeptically among political practitioners, who think the concept elides substantive differences in values and preferences in society. How would we define ‘commonsense’ in practice?” (06/06/24)
