I was recently irritated into activism – after a number of random people tried to convert me to their beliefs in a short space of time, I decided to produce an ‘atheist pamphlet’ to exchange with these people in future. I think the psychological aspects of religion, whether it's the functions it fulfills or the issue of enculturation, are often underestimated. You can find my leaflet at atheistprinciples.tripod.com, comments would be appreciated.

Dallas Gaytheist,

Those guys at CPW are a lot of talk. I have yet to determine what they really do.

Interesting article: The Americanization of Mental Illness in the NYTimes. Based on the author's book: Crazy Like Us: The Globalization of the American Psyche

New website I just found:

Cognitive Policy Works
Politics for Real People

Who We Are
Cognitive Policy Works is comprised of a growing community of experts in social and clinical psychology, cognitive linguistics, media studies, educational leadership, strategic forecasting, and entrepreneurship. Together we offer a powerful range of perspectives on the political process and the skills necessary to impact positive change in the world.

What We Do
Cognitive Policy Works is both an educational center that provides professional trainings to people in politics and a research/consulting firm that analyzes the workings of the political mind for nonprofits and social businesses. We’re a team of experts in political behavior and social change with a powerful combination of skills ranging from psychology and linguistics to media studies and strategic planning.

At the heart of our work is an understanding of human thought and behavior. We analyze cognitive frames, conceptual metaphors, moral worldviews, cultural narratives, and other aspects of political thought to demonstrate the significance of understanding how the mind works in social and political contexts. Unlike other organizations that work in this area, we seek to share our knowledge in the form of practical steps taken by practitioners to incorporate these insights into their daily work. In other words, we focus on the process (how to change what you’re doing) instead of merely providing products (in the form of reports and articles). This sets us apart from the standard think tank or consulting firm.

We seek to empower nonprofit leaders and grassroots activists alike, through innovative marketing models inspired by the open source software movement. Our goal is to develop new “best practices” and make them widely available to advocates of progressive social change as they face the major challenges of the 21st Century.
