Democracy, Public Reason and Peace Education

11/02/2011
By DALE T. SNAUWAERT
     Peace education, as Betty Reardon suggests, should be fundamentally concerned with the development of the political efficacy of future citizens. Political efficacy is dependent upon “sound political thinking,” “for inquiry into obstacles and possibilities for transformation should form the core of peace pedagogy, so as to provide learning in how to think and to act for political efficacy in peace politics . . .” (1) Learning how to think concerns conceptual clarity, thinking within conceptual frameworks, posing questions, rationality, and most importantly reflective inquiry. Peace education is thus closely aligned with democratic education grounded in the ideas of public reason and deliberation. 
 
A current, emergent example of democratic public reason and deliberation is the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Although in its infancy, it exhibits characteristics of democratic public reason; in particular, the process dimension of the content of public reason is exemplified in its commitment to and enactment of the process of consensus, its egalitarian openness, and its decentralized, non-hierarchical, “leaderless” orientation.  In a significant way it also exhibits the public values of economic and political equality and distributive fairness as central to a political conception of justice.  These elements are significant aspects of democratic public reason.  The Occupy Movement constitutes a nascent, spontaneous, and emergent instantiation of these aspects of public reason.  With the Occupy Movement’s spread around the globe, it is also cosmopolitan in character. In a tumultuous time in the history of our republic, and in the history of the world, the movement constitutes a promising upsurge in democratic participation, deliberation, and public reason.
