The Bad Influence

The Psychology of Partisan Politics

What we see on the surface is the distraction, the loud and shiny object which oftentimes stops us dead in our tracks. We’re now engaged, one side or the other, with almost no hope of finding a solution for anyone involved. The bell inevitably rings and we traipse back to our corners bloodied, not enough towels or bandages to make the slightest difference in our condition.




We’re a Bad Influence because we INCITE change through inclusion, thought and creativity. We imagine a world where people can think critically, express themselves, and thumb their nose at the status quo, together.
