Understanding the roots of opinion divides is critical to the new politics.
Joshua Malkin suggests some choice F words in response to politics as usual
Understanding the roots of opinion divides is critical to the new politics. Most people are still locked into the old oppositional identity politics, which is part of the old broken compass that has only two dysfunctional poles – either progressive or conservative. In a previous blog “Why Progressives Can’t Progress & Conservatives Can’t Conserve” – I made the case for mutualism as a new direction of regenerative shared purpose.
I expand on some other themes within that here.
A new definition of diversity
A new politics requires a non-partisan direction that most people can support and a practical future vision based on human values. One cultural example of this is the kindness revolution that is springing up in different places and forms, such as in Cardiff and in Leeds where the City Council has launched their Compassionate City Awards – and The Kindness Revolution are organising talks and workshops on the new KPI – Kindness Performance Indicators, the Kindness Innovation Network, the Wellbeing Economy and much more.
