Become the enemy for a
So many problems are caused from misunderstandings and preconceptions. I challenge you to BECOME your philosophical/political opposition for a week.
Take a whole week of your life and only listen to, watch, and read media your opposition enjoys.
Poorly written but the point being to try to actually understand where the opposition is coming from and why they believe what they do. Listen to and consider each point attempting to find the reality in it.
If you normally watch Fox News then only watch MSNBC. Conservative talk radio fan? Then try NPR.
Don’t bother doing it if you are just going to pick every point apart. Honestly try to understand the logic being made, because I assure you there is logic at work regardless of which way you are flipping for the experiment.
Then when the week is up go back to your normal media habits but spend the next week critiquing it through the lens you built from the previous week.
Let me know how it went. I would love to hear it, because of the more opinionated people I know, no one was willing to take the challenge.
