About this product
- DescriptionIt is an insightful exploration of how radical and extremist speech can affect the way we view the world. Our social unity is under attack from extremists on opposite sides of the political spectrum. Often the loudest and most influential public voices today are also the most divisive. Amid the din of conflicting claims, accusations, and counter accusations, voices of moderation can longer be heard. Under such conditions, how will we ever find common ground? Radical Distortion addresses this question with an insightful discussion of the social-science research on the decision-making processes of those who endorse extremist beliefs. One of the book's key findings is that extremism causes selective hearing and biases our very ability to make judgements. Based on the findings, Reich presents seven principles through which we can reduce or eliminate the toxic influences of extremist rhetoric and selective hearing.
