As you do, I make a point of consuming media from a variety of sources that reflect a variety of opinions. For issues that I do have a strong opinion about, I often seek out opinions from “the other side.” The effect on me varies. It often solidifies my original stance, but every once in a while, it modifies my stance, sometimes in a major way. At the very least, it gives insights into where other people are coming from; makes it easier to see them as people, and harder to dismiss or demonize them. I’ve become very aware that nothing is simple, and that strict dichotomies are rarely valid. Thanks for the podcast. Reply FPV on August 18, 2017 at 8:58 AM Indeed. We cannot hope to change minds if we don’t listen to their thoughts, even if they are terrible thoughts. I will have more and better podcasts, my friend. This one wasn’t well executed, but I wanted to get things registered and going. That done, it’s time to get back to work. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
