Here are a couple things going on that give me some hope that we might find ways out of our segregated echo chambers:
Arlie Russell Hochschild’s project to bridge the “Empathy Gap”: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/08/trump-white-blue-collar-supporters, http://thenewpress.com/books/strangers-their-own-land
I have a fantasy: Randomly pair every Trump voter with a Clinton voter for a “radical empathy” session, facilitated by Arlie Russell Hochschild.
A feasible plan? Hardly.
A pointer in the right direction? I think so.
Anybody know of more things going on like this? Please share.
