How Can Wisdom Solve Polarization?

May 29, 2023

“I am not entitled to have an opinion unless I can state the arguments against my position better than the people who are in opposition. I think that I am qualified to speak only when I’ve reached that state.” - Charlie Munger, Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway

One of the joys of living in Baja is that we feel so little socio-political polarization here. Yes, we have our arguments about whether a fish taco is best grilled or fried, but generally, we learn to hold our opinions lightly as we don't know it all, do we? (FYI, it's grilled)

Occasionally, we'll have various political perspectives amongst the two-dozen compadres in one of our workshops. Recently, we had a diverse group full of ardent supporters from the far left to the far right, with a sprinkling of cyber-libertarians and apolitical folks. With the appreciative inquiry method of asking questions as our ballast, we spent an hour looking at how we might use wisdom as a bridge for our political divide. Maybe it was because of our tasty fish tacos and the collegial spirit, but we were surprised at how adopting the other person's perspective helped us to understand why they had it.

Hey, Washington, DC, maybe it's time for more of you to take notice of Charlie Munger's quote.
