Introduction to the Rural – Urban Election Differences in the U.S.

Facilitated by Carl Angotti and Alex Havasy

11 a.m., January 10, 2021

This “video/audience discussion” Forum will be about the persons who violated the Capitol this week, and some of the roots of their anger and frustration with “the system” (including a discussion of new “vote splitting” in the U.S.).

We will view one video from a “right” perspective, discuss it, and then view a second longer and more educational video about a shift in U.S. politics over the last several years.

Hopefully, we can add to the perspective that we learned from “The Righteous Mind” by Jonathan Haidt.
