Stick to the Subject:   civil public discussion of the important public policy issues of the times

Proposed: a Rogue Valley in-person discussion society combined with an online, regional knowledge base

The Rogue Valley Discussion Society
the human arts to study, discuss, vote
The Knowledge Base
the technical crafts to collect, store, report
The Stick to the Subject project invites Rogue Valley residents from all backgrounds and points of view to create the Discussion Society: a network of small conversation groups that would meet in public locations to study, discuss, and vote on solutions to public policy issues selected by the Society.

What are your concerns? What are your ideas?

Wildfires and Logging Would increased logging prevent or mitigate catastrophic wildfire damage?
Self-Driven Vehicles How much privacy and freedom of movement will be lost when people no longer control their personal vehicles?
DUI Punishment Has the punishment for DUI infractions in which neither people nor property are injured become too severe? Has a new pariah class been created?
Population Trends What is the optimum population for the Rogue Valley? What happens past that point?

What Stick To The Subject Is Why? How It Would Work
How It Would Get Started How To Participate
