Politics of Civic Virtue-Citizens
What must citizens know?
What must they do?
Citizens should know enough to make fair judgments about the quality of the conduct of government, the promises made by politicians and office holders, elected and appointed, and to judge the quality of news reporting and civic discourse.
Citizens should also participate in their government. The first step should be at least a minimal donation to any of dozens of groups that support good government in Ohio. A second step should be to engage in civil discourse among your neighbors and peers; let them know there are boundaries to what is acceptable and what is not acceptable.
