Loud radicals... Loud leftwing extremists... Don't we know a few here?

Repeat after me.

I HATE MY COUNTRY.
I HATE MY COUNTRY.
I HATE MY COUNTRY.

Civility has drastically decreased since the pandemic started — or so more than two-thirds of Americans believe. And 85% think the American public is deeply divided.

Fortunately, these respondents overstate the depth of our divisions. While the loudest voices often preach discord, most Americans share many beliefs and want to escape the toxic politics tearing us apart at the seams.

Regardless of race, class and gender, Americans want to pursue their dreams free from outside interference. Most people don’t expect government handouts but do want equal opportunities and to be treated with dignity.

These points of agreement are often lost because politicians and social-media companies gain power and influence by amplifying inflammatory content.

Overcoming the noise and reviving the American Dream must transcend words. The first step is to unequivocally reject worldviews that demand people think or act in a certain way and policy proposals that weaken our communities and institutions. The goal should be a diverse and robust public square where everyone is unafraid to participate in day-to-day life and discussions.
