Does it ever feel like others respond to the events of the country as if you and they aren’t even seeing the same thing?
The chaotic, violent weekend at Charlottesville comes to mind.
But while differing interpretations of events is nothing new (even beneficial so that we can gain a more complete perspective), it seems now the two major political halves of the U.S. are further apart than they’ve ever been. They’re hardly even within shouting distance of one other.
In this video, I attempt to explain:
1. What these two sides are, as seen by their reactions to Charlottesville
2. How we got to this point of such polarization
3. How we can best move forward as a country
Enjoy, and please share your thoughts below.
