In this five minute video I simplify my new book: Developmental Politics—How America Can Grow Into a Better Version of Itself. There is much more to Developmental Politics than what is covered in this brief video. But as I explain, the need to increase our collective “cultural intelligence” is a central theme of the book. Excerpts are available at this link. The book can be ordered on Amazon at this link.

Polarization is more of a cultural problem than a political one https://thefulcrum.us/big-picture/polarization-is-more-of-a-cultural-problem-than-a-political-one
Looking beyond the binary politics of left-right, we can see how America is divided into 3 major worldviews. Using “cultural intelligence,” we can affirm the values of all 3. This doesn’t change our values, it strengthens our ability to use a wider spectrum of values
Perhaps counterintuitively for the Malthusians, human beings are the solution to environmental problems. https://acton.is/2SMxmF3
The “ah ha” moment of cultural intelligence comes when we realize that all 3 major American worldviews include values that we need. When we affirm the full spectrum of positive American values, we literally raises our own consciousness #DevelopmentalPolitics
@stevehfoerster Although the left-right polarity is indestructible, the currently stuck version of it can be transcended. #DevelopmentalPolitics
