We just posted a link to Bill Moyers interview with Jonathan Haidt author of the new book, The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion, to be published in March 2012.  See http://Facebook.com/WeVoteOrWeRecall

In the book, his interview with Moyers and the other info on the above site, Haidt explains the evolution of morality — how we evolved to have different morals, and how these differences can bind us together into groups that seek victory, not truth, and blind us to our own predispositions.

In an era of increasing political polarization, he strives to strengthen understanding and dialogue rather than falling back on the usual partisan accusations of “You just don’t get it!”
