Robert Reich lays down some common sense suggestions for fostering dialogue with folks that may not share one’s political viewpoints. I know there are persuasive arguments for not even attempting to engage the hard-core Republican fanatics, but not all non-democrats are hardcore Trump/Pence racist types. Plus it’s important to listen and hear what others are saying as well as being able to articulate one’s own viewpoint.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
