A blindness is disabling our politics and impairing our society. Every day it’s making us angrier with one another and putting us collectively more and more in the dark, where we can’t see each other clearly. The name of that blindness is polarization.
A common belief is society is divided into two mutually incompatible groups—the group of me and those like me who stand for truth and justice, and those not like me who stand for the opposite. It’s a wrong-headed way of seeing the world.
