In today's heated political climate, attempts to persuade the "other side" tend to fall apart faster than you can hit post.
That's because our arguments are based on our own psychology rather than those we're trying to convince, which of course is exactly the wrong thing to do.
Nice summary below of several studies showing the potential of 'moral reframing' in political discourse.
Worth a try?
“We tend to view our moral values as universal,” Feinberg told me. That “there are no other values but ours, and people who don't share our values are simply immoral. Yet, in order to use moral reframing you need to recognize that the other side has different values, know what those values are, understand them well enough to be able to understand the moral perspective of the other side, and be willing to use those values as part of a political argument.”
