Can a Divided America Heal?

Here is a very engaging TED talk on whether a divided America can heal after the 2016 election. Jonathan Haidt does a good job framing some important issues through a social psychology lens.

There are a couple points that are worth paying attention to when watching this talk:

  1. The relationship between parochial vs non parochial world views
  2. The relationship between culture and race
  3. The relationship between immigration and social capital
  4. The relationship between culture and socialism
  5. The moral matrix
