Why are we so polarized?

By Matt Palmer

The video is part one from an interview I recently did with Dr Badri Rickhi from the Canadian Institute of Natural and Integrative Medicine. He is a psychiatrist and an expert in integrative medicine based in Calgary.
The main focus of this interview was to examine some issues around why debates over things like energy have become so polarized. I feel this is an important issue for all of us to consider, and a subject I will address as the project moves forward. It is important for all of to think about how we step away from deeply held beliefs, ideologies, etc, if even for a moment to consider the other side of an issue. Sharpening this skill will help to broaden the discussion, and open up new possibilities of inquiry and solutions.
