I’m not much for cognitive therapy, in that much of it sounds like magic. I
am, however, certain that the continued polarization of our political
selves is the result of cognitive distortion brought on by an unwillingness
to submit to any will other than God’s.
Thus people voting and believing things that are not in their best interest
(and are oftentimes in their worst interest).
The question, then, is how to best stop the exploitation of this distortion
by politics, marketing, and religion?
