Thread: The "More in Common" Initiative

    The "More in Common" Initiative

    Ive spent a few days lurking here and only have one thing to offer.

    The Hidden Tribes report has been recently released a study of the views of 8000 Americans across a very wide demographic spectrum in an effort to identify the core divisive issues in US society, and begin to find means to bridge those divides. It was supplemented with information from various polls, and qualitative data from in-depth interviews with a smaller number of people.

    You may not agree with all of its methodologies or some of its a priori assumptions, or with some of the category choices which the authors have made, or its choice of font. Nonetheless, I believe the report is worth reading in full. And besides, there are lots of fascinating little graphs and diagrams to look at.

    The webpage is here:

    https://www.moreincommon.com/hidden-tribes

    The full report is in the second link its a pdf.

    I firmly believe that society is a dialectical process, and synthesis is always necessary. In order to achieve that, we need to step back and objectively scrutinize our own perspectives, and start listening to one another.

    Be healthy and happy.

    I'm not sure I understand. Which divide exactly are you referring to? Can you explain?
