Welcome to Spark!

Welcome to Spark!  Our intent is to develop a political conversation about the problems facing the United States and the world around us, and to pose solutions to those problems.  In that context, we will also consider contributions of historical writing, but we intend that the focus will remain on current events and current political situations.

We at Spark! would like to welcome not just readers and commenters, but anyone interested in contributing their own political writing and other creations.  Our intent is to maintain high academic content standards.  If you’re interested in contributing to Spark!, please see the Contributor’s Standards and Conditions.  We hope to make this a better world, and we hope to make Spark! a positive and successful experience for all.  We look forward to your enjoyment of our content, your (hopefully positive and friendly) suggestions and comments, and your contributions.
