We are living in a time of great turmoil. Our old social structures are falling apart, and many people are grasping at the pieces to hold them together. In desperate attempts to maintain some stability, people are clinging fearfully to that which is familiar. Desperation can cause people to become more conservative, more liberal, or more extreme in their values, opinions, and religious beliefs.

Extreme viewpoints polarize us, causing the gaps between people to grow wider and making it more challenging to find common ground.
