We’ve by no means seen something fairly like this in our politics.

There have been bitter divisions prior to now — the Civil Battle and Vietnam Period come to thoughts — however at no time in our historical past has politics been so fraught with anger, mistrust and disinformation — and turbocharged by algorithms that reward preventing and battle and discourage deliberation.

We have to discover our manner by way of this thicket, and I assume it begins with encouraging considerate dialogue.

That’s why we’re collaborating this 12 months with the La Follette Faculty of Public Coverage on the College of Wisconsin-Madison and Wisconsin Public Radio on a challenge we’re calling Wisconsin’s Most important Road Agenda.

We might like your reply to this central query:

“What would you like the candidates to be speaking about as they compete in your vote?”
