Can Right and Left ever be friends?


Following the brutal battle to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court, this Ben Shapiro Sunday Special with Jonathan Haidt was an interesting watch. Haidt is the author of The Righteous Mind, and his latest book, The Coddling of the American Mind with Greg Lukianoff, examines how good intentions and bad ideas are setting up a generation for failure.

Ben Shapiro and Jonathan Haidt discuss whether the Right and Left can ever reconcile, the problem with feelings and identity politics. Haidt believes there is common ground that can be found between the Left and the Right in the United States. I am not convinced, but it is a good discussion.
