How do the Thinking & Communication Styles on the Left & Right differ?
As we watch everything unfolding around the world in 2020, many of us are asking: how do we open the lines of communication between the left & right?
Below you’ll find a comparison of values & beliefs on both sides.
Granted, not every characteristic will apply to every single person, e.g. There are many religious & spiritual people on the Left. The list merely aims to show a contrast in generalized experience, with the aim of shedding some light on this current communications impasse we seem to be facing. There are also some interesting at-a-glance, ‘big picture’ views to give you some perspective.
The document is not intended to offend anyone or insult anyone. It intends to show ideologies on both sides, with the aim of improving the dialogue between us.
Perhaps this will help you in your next encounter or debate. Perhaps it will help you spark an answer about how we open the dialogue, so that we can begin to find a middle ground... and hopefully return to our lives in peace!
