America's Escalating Outrage
Wow, what an exceptional talk it was. He had a lot of insights into what has caused this growing divide between liberals and conservatives and how we can try to address it.

Given that dreary prediction, it was still a most informative talk and I learned a lot from it. Haidt is a professor at New York University and the author of a recent book titled "The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion". He is also a founding member of Heterodox Academy. Check out their website if you are interested. There is a lot of amazing information and fascinating points of view featured there.
