How to silence the loudest voices
10 May, 2021

We’re polarized by loud voices. It’s like having angry newscasters in your head.

You can silence them. Here’s how: don’t listen to them.

It’ll take “they” from “over there” to right in front of you. When you—yourself, personally—talk to a non-belligerent liberal, conservative, libertarian, agnostic, atheist, Muslim, Christian, pick your race, creed, background, orientation, you’ll find more confidence to ignore the voices that want to be in your head.

Change the “they” from whoever your angry info source is talking about to “they,” angry info sources. Screaming louder is what “they” want.
