Why Civility Matters

Civility goes beyond politeness, good manners and attentive listening. It includes sharing our beliefs and values with others while maintaining a sincere respect for theirs. It demands an open mind and a willingness to have our biases and opinions challenged.

We’re truly civilized when we’re ready, willing and eager to accept and support a superior argument.

Incivility stands in the way of problem solving and developing ideas for advancement. It nullifies the great advantage humans have – pooling ideas to accomplish what no single one of us can do alone – and inevitably leads to conflict.

In short, incivility destroys human potential.

Right and Left, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan organization committed to the promotion of civility at the grassroots level. In a self-governed democracy, all power is in the hands of the people. Political civility will become a national virtue when the people will settle for nothing less.

Support the effort to spread the word that civility matters.
