As politicians decry the polarization that is the current state of the nation, I wondered what I — one person — could do to better understand the divisions in our thinking and take action to narrow the differences that plague the American citizenry. I came up with this list to dos:
Fuel my car with coal.
Work a day for minimum wage.
Pay for any medical charges out of my own pocket.
Sell all my stock out of distrust for Wall Street.
As among the 99% who aren’t, I will do everything possible to become a millionaire.
Surrender my gun.
Watch Fox News.
Agree with everyone’s political and religious beliefs.
Tear down the wall separating my property from my neighbors.
See if there’s a way to test whether climate change hurt my garden.
I won’t trade baseball cards with someone from China.
Finally, I note Republican motorists tend to pass on right and Democrats on the left. If either cuts me off in traffic, I will blow them a kiss for unity.
