There’s a lot of talk about the dangers of partisanship out there, but let me be another voice to tell you, ignoring the other side, casting them off as crazy, and demonizing them will get you nowhere. How are you going to strengthen your own beliefs and your own arguments if you don’t know what the other side is saying? I LOVE learning from liberals on topics I’m either not informed about or still forming my own opinion on because I can finally hear both sides and make an informed decision myself. Similarly, liberals often argue with more emotion, and that’s often really persuasive to people. Learning that style can help inform your own arguments, even if you know you can’t rely on emotion alone.
