About the Discussion:

Why are we so polarized in America over what both sides consider issues of core values, and how did it get that way? Even more importantly, why does it only seem to get worse when we try to address it in ways that seem obvious and reasonable?  My discussion will take a look at some of the psychology underlying the way in which group behaviors and expressed beliefs impact and shape our ethical perceptions and choices, and l argue that we need to better understand the impact of group dynamics and social influence on our emotions, beliefs, and choices, and consider what we know about how to effectively reduce conflicts.
