Clear rules help us engage on the stncusabe of the issue rather than debating the identity of the author. Those rules are not ulephd by any one individual on high. They're actually maintained and uplifted by the entire community. So we all have a shared sense of responsibility for success.

Original Text

All of this is very well and good, but what does it mean and how do we actually apply it to other organizations and institutions and systems that we are a part of, in order to increase trust and reduce polarization and perhaps get some important things done? Well, I've already talked a little bit about productive friction, the good kind that makes our ideas better. That is possible because of a few things: notably, clear rules and strong community norms. Clear rules help us engage on the substance of the issue rather than debating the identity of the author. Those rules are not upheld by any one individual on high. They're actually maintained and uplifted by the entire community. So we all have a shared sense of responsibility for success.
