It’s a preference to see the Other Side as a cardboard cut out and not the complicated individual human beings that they actually are.
The “Other Side” Is Not Dumb.
Sean Blanda

I don’t know if this behavior results from a “preference” or whether it’s a tendency (maybe this is hairsplitting), but you are identifying something hugely important: the behavior of reducing another human being to the one-dimension of their opinion or belief about something. Now, of course, holding one belief or opinion can imply (often does) holding others, but this is neither necessary or obvious. What is risky, however, is not simply that we fail to see people as complicated, but that we stop thinking of them as human at all, but rather as mere obstacles to our own superior world view.
