The National Governors Association has just announced an initiative called "Disagree Better."
"Americans are deeply concerned and exhausted by the hyper-partisanship and polarization in our country, and rightly so. We've forgotten how to persuade without hating each other. But our nation's history shows there's a better way, and we all need to re-learn how to Disagree Better."
"It's crucial to disagree. Our nation was founded by people who profoundly disagreed. Conflict isn't bad, it's the way we disagree that matters. Healthy disagreement means not assuming the other side is deluded, misinformed or actively trying to overthrow America."
"Be curious, ask questions, you might find you're not as far apart as you think and discover solutions you hadn't thought of before."
