The motivation for this site stems from the observation that many complex issues of the day are not informed by critical analysis, facts or relevant research. Instead we observe endless ideological differences directing the dialog, hindering thoughtful discussion and, more importantly, obstructing the adoption and implementation of informed policies which have a greater propensity to improve quality of life. While I doubt this blog will resolve said issue, I hope in some small way it contributes to more thoughtful and productive dialog leading to better decision-making based on evidence.
