My Name is David A. Chase. I am a 39 year old Catholic philosopher, theologian and writer. Like many people I am unhappy with the enormous amount of division within our society and our politics. The unwillingness, or inability, of most people to look at both sides of an argument and to try and understand what the other side is trying to accomplish is a malady that inevitably affects both sides of any conflict, yet it is only by gaining this understanding that we can come together.
I have created this page to promote a North American Strategy for closing the divide through a fostering of understanding. One cannot hope to end division or oppression unless one is willing to first learn about and understand the ideas and beliefs of those who think differently, then be willing and able to teach one’s views in a way they will understand.
