Two Ways

“People tend to approach challenges in one of two ways:  as problem-solving, or as conflict.”  ~Steven Pinker (source)

That’s why the American government doesn’t work anymore.  As long as congress sees every issue as a conflict to be won rather than a problem to be solved, we’re going to lurch from one extreme to the other.

The big danger is that we’ll lurch into a ditch of fascism and not be able to pull ourselves back out.
