Bridging the Political Divide

The two extremes of the political spectrum in the US have finally found a subject where they are in complete agreement. Here is my new very short video explaining how this happened:

When people here about the far-left person I talk about in the video, they immediately assume it’s an unemployed, overgrown lay-about living in his mom’s basement. When they hear about the far-right person, they think it’s a toothless, uneducated peasant.

But reality is different. Both these people are of the kind who tell you, “I remembered yesterday this really great strudel I ate in a little coffee-shop in Germany. So I booked a flight to Munich to go have some as soon as possible.” These are very educated, very successful, well-traveled, multilingual people with extraordinarily refined tastes in art, food, clothing, etc.

One thought on “Bridging the Political Divide

  1. “Intelligence” is a myth. It’s more “Savant”—individuals who are exceptionally gifted and have a stronger-than-average aptitude in one or two specific areas, but are still substandard in all other aspects/areas.
