- Problem: the set of people skilled at healthy communication habits is unlikely to be a representative sample of all perspectives in terms of ideas.
- Solution(s): ???
I have lots of thoughts… If we reduce emphasis on healthy communication, we risk all sorts of problems. But how can we avoid having a biased overall community perspective which favors whoever happens to be more skilled at communication?
Should we strongly emphasize the practices of “steel-manning” and Rapoport’s Rules to get everyone to actively help present the ideas that are under-represented?
I think we want to recruit (and train if needed) great facilitators separate from moderators. Such facilitators would just go around helping everyone else express their ideas better with emphasis on highlighting marginalized perspectives and working against the over-weighting of dominant ideas or voices…
