As the election is over and we’re coming up on holiday season where we may be spending time with families, to try and break cycle of yelling over politics while we fill our faces with turkey I’d like to suggest that people read The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion by Dr. Jonathan Haidt. The book was written well in advance of The Trump Presidency and doesn’t take his particular brand of populism into account but goes a long way to describe why good people who are R or D vote they way they do from a psychological point of view.

A NYTimes review is linked below. The book is available wherever you normally buy books.
