  1. The Braver Angels effort, which is very laudatory, seems to focus on one-on-one better understandings. I respect people I differ with, and I work to understand their points of view, and I dig deeper to understand the reasons why. Despite this, I see little chance of actually changing their values or persuading them to drop their attachment to their beliefs and asserted facts. Is acceptance of differences sufficient for you or is your mission reconciliation for action around a common goal?
