Jonathan Haidt: How common threats can make common (political) ground – YouTube

Ronald Reagan says if aliens attacked the earth all our supposed differences would vanish in the common struggle for survival.  Prof. Haidt is working hard to find ways to help us overcome our partisan (psychological) differences.  This TEDTalk points to issues wherein the politics of for example, Grover Norquist and me are in significant agreement.  To tell the truth, I LIKE believing I am in an important sense on Grover’s and George Bush’s team!
