Polarization, relationships, linear thinking, belonging, practice, possibilities

Key Insights

  • Polarization is an energetic phenomenon of being which occurs in the space between us, in our relationships. It’s visceral.

What’s happening

Polarization (extremes of opinion, erosion of a more moderate center) is an increasing topic of concern for people in many areas of their lives, from family get-togethers to workplace relationships.

Impact of the challenge

People want to destroy the opposite thinking, are afraid and don’t feel safe. This creates arguing, very little openness, deep divisions, no compromise, no consensus.

What’s holding the challenge in place

Propaganda, sensionalism, disproportionate coverage of extreme views in the media, activism, policies, in-group bias, failing political system, powerful corporations with partisan motives influencing policy outcome.
