Jason Hartman talks with Erik Fogg, author of Wedged: How You Became a Tool of the Partisan Political Establishment & How to Start Thinking for Yourself Again, as well as Chief at ReConsider and co-host of the ReConsider podcast, about the discourse in our society that is causing all of us problems that are being perpetuated by people who deal in fear.

Key Takeaways:

[2:16] Our 2 party system is brought about largely by the way we vote

[5:15] People who are upset or angry are more likely to donate to things like a campaign, vote, or keep watching a TV show

[8:29] Politicians, as a group, can never ultimately win because they’re playing a zero sum game

[9:37] What is the Green Fog Curve?

[11:51] The most dangerous thing for us individually is to start letting our emotional response drive our reaction
