Liberty. Prosperity. Beauty.

These ideas change lives everywhere.

What is Common Sense Society?

Common Sense Society is an international network that promotes liberty, prosperity, and beauty—representing timeless principles that are indispensable to human flourishing and happiness.

With a community-centered model across North America and Europe, we educate 21st-century generations and inform public discourse. Our Fellowships, curriculum resources, publications, cultural programs and events, and targeted national campaigns illuminate the enduring ideas that have transformed the course of human history for the better. Ideas have consequences.

Join us as we consider a future that draws on the best of the past—a future that is free, flourishing, thoughtful, and full of enduring meaning.

Locations

Common Sense Society was founded as a debating forum in 2009 by a group of American and European university students. They aimed to explore the ideas that have shaped our history and will greatly influence our future. The Society quickly evolved into a celebration of the “sensus communis,” the most important lessons of our shared civilization.

Today, Common Sense Society has spread across Europe and North America. Our National Branches differ in respects, but our mission is the same: Advance the timeless principles of liberty, prosperity, and beauty—aspirations that all people, in all places, can achieve.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
