Common Sense Community builders is a grass roots group that seeks to promote common sense ideas in order to build a better American community. We fight political correctness with truth.
Our goal is to build a nationwide grass roots network that will promote personal virtue, neighborliness, and limited government in order to reform our communities, thereby restoring a more virtuous, healthy, and prosperous America.
We see ourselves as counter-revolutionaries that promote neighborliness and virtue. We fight cultural crap in all of its forms. We focus on responsibilities rather than rights. A lot of other groups are already focusing on rights, which is fine, but not enough of us are addressing the big picture - the decline of our civilization.
We challenge the conventional wisdom of the ruling class that dominates academia, entertainment, big business, government, the national media, and many think tanks and community organizations.
This is a non-sectarian and non religious organization for philosophical conservatives, enlightened liberals, and rational libertarians. We wish to restore the enduring principles and community standards that made the United States exceptional and have unfortunately been steadily eroded for over a century. Our focus is restoring the civil society by limiting the power of the government and the ruling class in order to foster personal responsibility.
Our primary change method is reason. But we also understand that many people are influenced by appeals to emotion, and thus we are also willing to employ emotional appeals to reach people.
We believe that in addition to using education and creative social marketing, it is important to use person to person community activism, infiltration, shame, withdrawing consent, and civil disobedience to change the culture.
In the past, we have spent too much energy on electoral politics. We believe if we can change the narratives that create meaning, the politicians will follow us. These methods have previously been the purview of community organizers on the hard left. We hope to change that.
