Peter Coleman Writes: Washington Is Fixed and Needs to Be Broken

Writing in The Huffington Post, ICCCR Director Peter Coleman writes that gridlock in Washington, D.C. is so extreme that U.S. politicians and their chief supporters are "engaged in patterns of behavior that resist change" and that they "reenact repeatedly and often automatically, even when they may at times prefer not to." Calling upon average citizens to "destabilize this fixed system" from the bottom up, he advises us to "beware absolute certainty-' take responsibility for the state of our state-' reflect on our own contradictions-' go new-'and see possibilities.
