My new article was recently published in Integral Leadership Review: “Why Centrism Fails and How to Overcome Hyperpolarization.”
From the article: “Among the many uses of integral philosophy, its most promising application is in the realm of politics. This is especially true of the hyperpolarized condition of politics in the U.S., where the growing intensity of America’s culture war now threatens the foundations of its democracy. Even though Donald Trump is no longer president, American culture and politics remain starkly and bitterly divided. Hyperpolarization, however, is not a problem that can be solved under America’s current cultural conditions. The only way to ameliorate this “wicked problem” is to effectively grow out of it. By pointing to achievable next steps for America’s cultural evolution, integral philosophy accordingly offers a realistic remedy for America’s political dysfunction.”

Instead we need to embrace the “good” solution to climate change, and the integral/post-progressive worldview has a unique capacity to find a version of “the good” that all major worldviews can resonate with. 2/
As the last week has made clear, we can’t afford to wait for the “perfect” solution to climate change to succeed amidst our raging culture war. 1/
We’re not really seeking common ground, we’re staking out a kind of higher ground wherein a more inclusive level of cultural solidarity can emerge. Notwithstanding America's hyperpolarization, we’re buoyed by our practice of virtues, which includes hope as a habit of the heart.
