    I’m not sure how the two people from the “Initiative for engaged citizenship” can claim that their program is non-partisan. If you look on their website they say they are affiliated and sponsored by the “Third Sector New England” which basically promotes socialism. I know on this show you tend to have guests (and links) that promote socialist ideas, but you shouldn’t have guests that try to hide that or come across as non-partisan.

    I know nothing about Third Sector New England. A little web research does show that they’ve been the fiscal sponsor for dozens of groups. I don’t see any political parties among the ones I found.

    While it was time-consuming, I liked the long-answer form of the questionnaire. I think there’s too much push to make everything a yes/no, up/down answer already in elections. Most things don’t actually work that way.
