A Great Piece: The “Other Side” Is Not Dumb

"Sharing links that mock a caricature of the Other Side isn’t signaling that we’re somehow more informed. It signals that we’d rather be smug assholes then consider alternative views. It signals that we’d much rather show our friends that we’re like them, than try to understand those who are not.

Because refusing to truly understand those who disagree with you is intellectual laziness and worse, is usually worse than what you’re accusing the Other Side of doing."
