I don’t know what it would take to get us to think beyond immediate (and often destructive) gratification of our egos, when it comes to politics.

Dan Ariely does a great talk about irrational behaviour (in general), don’t know if his principles can help us in this context.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
