In this section I lay out my current point of view on causes, potential solutions and what success at addressing this challenge looks like. Point of View: > Background | Defining the Problem | Causes | Solutions | What is Success?
I do not yet have a confident point of view on this.  I have plenty of ideas, but in the interest of avoiding creating lightning rods before I’m even confident if they are worth discussing, I will demur until more qualified to speak to solutions.

Next > Well, when one does solve this, what does that success look like?

Divisive partisanship is preventing us from accomplishing “jack.”

Americans’ propensity to quickly leap to negative prejudgements of ideological opponents poisons our ability to interact with the teammates we need to advance our personal and national goals.

We’re going to fix that.

Thoughts from across the aisle...

“A family from Mexico who arrived here this morning, legally, has as much right to the American dream as the direct descendants of the founding fathers. … when the blood of the sons of immigrants and the grandsons of slaves fell on foreign fields, it was American blood. In it you could not read the ethnic particulars of the soldier who died next to you. He was an American. And when I think of how we learned this lesson, I wonder [how] we could have unlearned it.”

— Bob Dole, 11-year Senate Majority Leader (GOP), WW2 purple heart veteran
