This is how we end hyper-partisan politics

  • Alice Dreger shares brilliant advice for divisive times: Break bread, literally, with your so-called enemy. “[S]ee if [you] can have a conversation, and preferably to do it over food or drink, because there is something very primal in us about sharing food and drink that allows us, I think, to open our hearts and our minds.”
  • If you’re passionate about social change, Dreger recommends avoiding destructive tools or methods that would cause a kind of “arms race” in activism—it leads somewhere that no one wants to go.
  • Spend time getting to know the issues you care about from a nonpartisan perspective—do descriptive, not normative, research. It will remind you of what the other side may be seeing that you might be missing because you’re blinded by your partisan side.
