Our society has been listening very well for the next thing to make each other wrong (supported nicely by HuffPost, Jon Stewart, Drudge, TMZ and on and on…). We’re as good as we’re ever going to be at that. Is it helping us progress?
The skill we need to work on is just listening. Shhh, it’s right there…just…listen. The more deeply we listen, the more commonality we hear.
