I didn’t see it coming. Maybe I was too busy not listening or even caring to understand anything but what I wanted to hear. I for sure wasn’t going to listen to any voices come from the other side.
Election 2016 reminds me of the work of Jonathan Haidt’s (Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion). Here’s a sketchnote I drew when I first read the book a few years ago.
For more on the trouble with blind passion and power of listening, read The Adventures of Warrior Woman: Too much Passion.
Sketchnote inspired by David Graeber’s essay in The Baffler.
I was also inspired by Henrik Dresher’s illustrations, which I found thanks to the Baffler.
