How to Reunite a Nation

I have recently published an article which describes a solution to divisive politics in the USA. The conclusion I arrived at was a consequence of the social theory set out in this blog, and it is interesting that my predictions already seem to be coming to pass. The article is longer than my normal posts and I have, therefore, created a pdf which can be downloaded here.

I hope that you find it interesting.
