After the Election, Fear Is Our Only Chance at Unity -JONATHAN HAIDTQuicklink submitted by Susan Lee Schwartz Permalink
|'A national election focuses our attention on a single level of competition -- political party versus political party. Let's call that 'me and my brother against our cousin.' But after that, it's time for our national team to come together to fight the many threats and enemies that confront us. Let's unite with our cousins to fight the stranger!' 'when so many of our leaders can't even occasionally place national interest before party interest, we've crossed over into hyperpartisanship. And that's a very bad thing, because it amplifies other problems.' ' We're in big trouble, and anyone who does that hyperpartisan stuff now should be ashamed -- or kicked out of office. The day after Election Day is the day for all of us, and our siblings and cousins, to come together and start building an asteroid deflection system.'|
