Left2Right Mission

I think I'm going to enjoy Left2Right quite a bit. However, a word of advice: their mission will be an abject failure without a coherent narrative explaining the problems confronting liberalism. I agree that liberalism is in crisis, and I have tried to explain why I think that situation exists. I just don't have a satisfactory fix. Their mission:

We're interested in liberal ideas, though we are probably far from unanimous about what "liberal" means, and our being interested in liberal ideas doesn't entail that each of us subscribes to all of them. We think that political debate in this country has deteriorated into a shouting match, a food fight, a flame war -- call it what you will. We'd like to consider whether liberal ideas should be somehow re-ordered, re-framed, re-stated, with the aim of increasing the overall ratio of dialog to diatribe in the American political forum. Some of us will be trying out various ways of re-thinking and re-formulating those ideas; others may end up arguing that such attempts are unnecessary, even counter-productive.
