Your answers to my questions

Considerate Awareness Magazine asks many questions, mainly to encourage each visitor's own philosophical reflections.

I would especially encourage you to enter the international essay competition about considerate democracy.  Explore this magazine to find out more.

Your questions about the essay competition

Much of this website, at least in these public pages, is aimed at encouraging people to develop their English comprehension skills.  Literacy is more than being able to understand individual words.  Language only has a shared meaning if it is accurately communicated and interpreted.

Perhaps the above paragraph has even given you some ideas for an essay about considerate democracy!  Have you scribbled a draft yet?

If you ever feel confused about the content of Considerate Awareness Magazine, and you have explored this website for several hours already (preferably for no more than one hour per day), then please send a message to the main email address with request for help in your subject line.  Would you be interested in structured training?

If you are having difficulty understanding information here, maybe some remedial literacy or English language training would be useful to you.  Although I am unable to provide such services personally, your local library or government's education deparment should be able to point you in the right direction.

Your comments about the future of
independent, non-fiction book publishing

Your involvement in promoting considerate democracy

There are many ways to promote considerate democracy, the main one is to be considerate and democratic yourself.  There are no organisations to join or membership fees as these exclude those who are non-members.

Considerate democracy is an inclusive social phenomenon, based on putting facts before assumptions.  On the other hand, ideological democracy, like other forms of political expression, put assumptions before facts.  Do you know the difference between facts and assumptions?

Considerate democracy is not based on an ideology.  That is another reason why there are no official bodies to control it. 

To ensure that I continue my independent research, and my writings, you may wish to support the various initiatives I outline below.  Respecting my copyright would be appreciated, too.

You may also know of a book or other publication that may assist my understanding of considerate democracy.  If you can donate a copy, that would be especially wonderful.

Just send an email to the main address to make suggestions, offers or give insights.  If you write the word library in your subject line, that would be appreciated.
