The United States is a deeply polarized nation. The inability of its two major political parties to come together to pass meaningful legislation, and the bitter fights that ensue over confirmation votes, are reflected in the population at large. Depending on which source of news media one is consuming, Americans’ worldviews are becoming radically different that it is hard to find common ground. This helps explain why so many millions of Americans voted for a proven serial liar like Donald Trump and why the rest were confounded by Trump’s supporters. In a new book, authors Nolan Higdon and Mickey Huff make a case for critical dialogue and communication.
