...policy, culture, & meaning...

option3 is an evolving new media think tank.  option3 looks beyond the conceit and division of East and West, tradition and the contemporary, science and faith, markets and the state, linear and holistic thought, and, of course, Republicans and Democrats.  option3 hopes to connect existing constituencies and develop a policy platform that responds to the needs of the average American individual and family.

option3 also acknowledges the arrational*; it does not simply examine issues from the dominant paradigms of linear thought and rationality.  It advocates the measured use of precaution, consensus-building, and intuition - particularly in the face of indeterminate, high-consequence risks.
