Perhaps, like me, you’ve felt sadly concerned over the growing divisiveness in our nation. When I read the news or listen to weekly roundtable discussions, the voices calling for understanding and unity are often drowned out by angry shouts from opposing sides where people are digging deeper trenches, preparing for battle.
Each side is absolutely convinced they are right. So sure, in fact, that the only reason they consider a differing opinion is to find the best argument against it. They don’t listen. They aren’t curious. Neither side seems interested in understanding an alternative point of view.
On a smaller scale, I witness the same dynamic in my office each week.
