For your consideration, I am passing along what I consider to be an interesting, 11 minute TED talk by Elizabeth Lesser. It’s titled, Take “the Other” to Lunch. In it she talks about how she as a devout liberal took a Tea Party person to lunch and how they, with a few agreed-upon guidelines, managed to prevent their noon hour from devolving into a raucous food fight (although those are my words and not exactly what she said — okay, not even close). Perhaps it might be possible to learn from messages like this: that more can be accomplished by eating from the plate of civility than by engaging in a yelling match because rigorous scientific research (consisting of AC consulting his navel and its rather impressive collection of lint) has demonstrated conclusively that nobody ever changes anyone else’s mind by yelling at them.
