We live in an age of political polarization. As political beliefs on the left and the right have been pulled closer to the extremes, so have our social environments: we seldom interact with those with whom we don't see eye to eye. Making matters worse, we are being appealed to--by companies, products, and teams, for example--based on our deep-seated, polarized beliefs. Our ...more

Democracy is a good thing, but it can become so much better if a gang liked by Talisse would rule instead, by the people and for the people, of course. In other words, you are paying taxes so Talisse would have the comfortable life he wants and in turn he can give you the benevolent dictators to rule this unruly Democracy of today.

Centrist

As a true centrist I found this book energizing as to why I disagree with so many. The pervasiveness of political polarization has made me the rarity I feared I was. This book describes the phenomenons by which it occurs. A good read.
I also grew up in the same small suburb with the author. Nice job old friend.
