This book club focuses on the problem of hyper-partisanship in the U.S., and how Americans can begin to address the problems it has created. We read about and discuss corollary topics like income inequality, race relations, media fragmentation, etc. The goal is to have hopeful, informed conversations about how the country can reverse the trend toward greater divisiveness we've been seeing. Anyone who finds this topic interesting or appealing should join!
Hi all -- We had another thought-provoking discussion Saturday on Fantasyland, thanks to all participants. Next month (Saturday, Nov. 14th on Zoom we'll switch gears a little -- Luke Phillips of Braver Angels has offered to present a 90-minute version of a post-election workshop the organization has developed, called With Malice Towards None.
The workshop focuses on how to treat people with different political affiliations in the post-election period. Braver Angels has a lot of excellent depolarization programs, and I'm excited to have Luke share what they're doing to try to make what will surely be a sensitive time easier for participants. Hope to see you there!
