Reading Fiala’s nice essay, I’m trying to resist feeling a bit slighted as I work out the possible implications of the penultimate remark :

“The democratic faith is a commitment to make a world in which intelligent cooperation produces humane outcomes. Without that faith, we might as well move to Canada”

Congratulations to the winners. More philosophers need to offer such comments. I tend to letters to editors rather than op Ed, which these pieces inspire me to try in our local papers. I especially, considering myself a liberal independent, would like my conservative colleagues to make their voices heard. The more discussion and debate, the healthier our democracy.
