"Political modes of argument and debate have infiltrated all of our spheres," says "On Being" host Krista Tippett. "The way we take up any important subject, even in a community, even in a religious institution, it's very contentious. It's about turning issues into a debate between this extreme and that extreme, it's about competing answers. It's not about what are the questions before us that we all have a stake in. There are some simple things that we can do that are actually very hard because they feel so counter-intuitive because of the set of instincts and reflexes that we've worked up." Krista Tippett joins us to talk about politics and civility and the upcoming "Repairing Public Discourse" event in Missoula Tuesday night.
