I’m a (centrist) Democrat, and I really enjoyed this. I shared with my friends, because I agree that we have a habit of not understanding the conservative perspective.
The section on facts was rich with irony (unfortunate timing so close to “alternative facts”), but even there, point taken. Our society as a whole is just starting to negotiate who gets to determine facts in the Facebook age. I suspect we’ll figure that out in less than a decade, but we’ll see.
I completely agree that my side gasps “how dare you even say that”- which shuts down conversation. That’s the point I’m trying to share with my team more than any other. That attitude isn’t effective.
Thanks for writing. I look forward to more.
