Here's how technology can help reduce political polarization
“They voted for Trump, so obviously we can’t talk about anything.”
“There’s no use reasoning with them; they’re left-wing nuts.”
“Why can’t they see that THEY are the problem?”
This type of extreme political polarization feels ordinary in today’s America. Confident ignorance and self-righteous anger seem normal. Apparently bent on division, we dismiss the other side instead of valuing alternative viewpoints.
These problems are easy to see. The challenge is fixing them.
