Democracy Ohio

is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to doing education related to the practice of democracy via the website: Topics will range widely, from political history, to the use of science in a democracy, to the abuse of public education, to the abuse of the public commons, and more. To a limited extent the site was developed in relation to the Ohio Bicentennial being perhaps an "educable moment," and the poverty of meaningful content being presented by the sanitized programs and events of the official Ohio Bicentennial. The other reason for the development is somewhat self-evident. The site is open to submissions that will be moderated. A forum is to be added soon as well, hopefully to support discussion of a more informed and less partisan nature than commonly found on many list serves. Contact: Tadit Anderson -
