Mission and Founding Principles
The mission of Fighting To Understand is to make seemingly complicated topics into “simply complicated.” We do this by forming a collaborative cross-section of “regular” people to fight to understand a topic, in as much complexity as we can muster. We then present the findings to other regular people. Our maiden voyage: Is America Broken?
Our Founding principle
Our founding principle includes the belief that “regular” people of goodwill, paying attention while interacting with life, can act as a jury or a group of scientists in search of holistic understanding.
