What is deliberation and why is it important?

The discovery of a shared direction, guided by what we value most.

Deliberation is an unbiased kind of talking that starts where the problem starts with your experience of it. It's not a bunch of abstract backroom negotiations, but real, genuine, human struggles of which we are a part.

Unlike debate, or lecture, or an airing of grievances, deliberation asks us to begin with what we hold most dear and share our personal experiences with a given issue. It's not about reaching agreement or seeing eye-to-eye. It's about looking at the costs and consequences of possible solutions to daunting problems, and finding out what we, as a people, will or will not accept as a solution.
