What do you see as your responsibility to hear a different side?
Some polarization is a natural part of an election as a way of differentiating between political parties and candidates, but today we are increasingly seeing Americans who vote for other parties not just as different or wrong, but as morally corrupt, evil. Contributing to this, based on our politics, we read different news sources that support our existing narratives. This kind of polarization can halt progress on important policies–even ones with a majority of the country’s support—sparking anger and resentment in politics, fraying our social fabric, and leading more people to fear the potential for violence.
