“He who knows nothing is closer to the truth than he whose mind is filled with falsehoods and errors.”
This sage wisdom resonates in today’s polarized world of politics. The far right and the far left live their lives consuming only information and opinion which aligns with their distorted and extreme views, never taking the time to consider alternative points of view and possibility. This is the greatest form of ignorance. Only in the center can respectful dialogue and real solutions emerge. I respectfully ask any “staunch conservative” or “staunch liberal” to let go of your fears and realize the strength of synergy and shared solutions vs. continual and fractious debate.
