>>My assumption is that we find true dialog
threatening. Groups value stability. Stability comes
from shared meanings, shared norms, shared values.<<
--Very true. There is often the perception that anyone
who can bridge the values of two groups is a traitor
to both sides. Someone beyond the liberal/conservative
dichotomy may be rejected by both sides as a nuisance,
a threat to shared assumptions that define a group
against another. It's common in a polar system
dominated by two opposing parties for each to drift
away from its own values simply because it's using
difference from the other party or dominance over it
as the only feedback that matters.
