In his book, Them: Why We Hate Each Other — and How to Heal (St Martin’s Press, 2018), Ben Sasse, a New York Times best-selling author and Senator from Nebraska, provides his answer to why we hate each other. He explains our attitudes toward the other, its causes, and the remedy for adjusting them as they exist in our country’s current climate of polarization. To many observers, our differences have defined us to the extent we see our opponents not as those with whom we disagree, but as enemies. Our adversaries are viewed with disdain, for they are not wrong, but evil. The cause of this prevailing climate of Tribalism as viewed in the current notions and perspectives is challenged by Sasse. He offers instead an alternative view of its cause. In this study group we will be evaluating his thought-provoking conclusions as to the merits and value in providing a broader understanding of why we are where we are today.
