Can't We All Just Get Along?

There's too much contention in our society. From a gridlocked Congress to neighborhood disputes, it seems like we spend too much energy fighting and not enough figuring how we can work together. Online discussion and debate hold the potential for helping us talk out our differences, but even those discussions tend to bog down in "flaming" and talking past each other. Justify is a new system for organizing large-scale debate about important topics to aid decision-making. Rather than simply organize posts chronologically, it organizes discussion around "points" -- single ideas or opinions that can be classified, agreed or disagreed with, supported or refuted. The system provides semi-automatic summarization of the discussion at all levels, making it easier for participants to reflect on what's going on, or newcomers to join.
