Lisa Cote’ and Doug Teschner discuss with us an organization that whose goal it is to enable people, especially in the US, to be able to talk to each other, despite political divisions. The purpose is to open a dialog. The last few years have been very polarizing, and people have stopped even respecting each others’ points of view. This organization is THE BRAVER ANGELS. They encourage participants to join. Those participants should be the whole spectrum of society. Their pledge is
As individuals, we try to understand the other side’s point of view, even if we don’t agree with it.
In our communities, we engage those we disagree with, looking for common ground and ways to work together.
In politics, we support principles that bring us together rather than divide us.
Bill Curry, writer, political commentator, former candidate for governor of Connecticut.
We discuss how Trump may be gone from the White House, but trumpism is still around.
We discuss the hundreds of felonies Trump may have committed, how he has debased political speech, and how he has divided the country.
We also discuss the Biden agenda going forward. Biden has indicated that he has no plans to personally indict Trump. This must be a decision by the Justice Department, not a personal witch hunt.
We, as a nation, must ensure that there should be consequences for the assault on our democracy, and the attempted installation of a fascist government by Trump.
