Divisive partisanship is a serious problem.
For decades it has obstructed progress on issues important to all of us: middle class opportunity, border security, climate change, gun violence, foreign adversaries, coordinated pandemic response, healthcare ….
But polarization can be overcome.
Our nation has done so before (most recently post-Vietnam) and can do so again, as long as we:
(a) recognize the problem and
(b) take deliberate action before the situation devolves to violence.
Indeed, e.pluribus.US has identified promising solutions to partisanship.
Our focus is on scalable methods of evolving attitudes across mass populations.
We’re underway testing several.
We have the data to demonstrate already we’ve opened minds of ideological opponents.
In 2022 we’re launching two more promising initiatives to reduce polarization.
e.pluribus.US advocates a nation that is as proud of its skill at finding collaborative solutions as it is of its awesome tradition of competing.
