TED.com: Jonathan Haidt’s “How common threats can make common (political) ground”

A wish for a new year, Village Square style…

A wish for 2013, from Dr. Jonathan Haidt’s must-read book The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion.

“When I was a teenager I wished for world peace, but now I yearn for a world in which competing ideologies are kept in balance, systems of accountability keep us all from getting away with too much, and fewer people believe that righteous ends justify violent means. Not a very romantic wish, but one that we might actually achieve.”

It’s what we’ll be working hard on this year at The Village Square and with our new project The Asteroids Club.
