Replying to @JonHaidt
DEMOCRACY = MONOPOLY
1) Markets allow competing groups to collaborate on means, even if they pursue opposing ends. Classical Houses of classes create a market. Democracy creates a monopoly by eliminating the market for commons between the classes, and forcing conflict into the informational commons.
COSMOPOLITANISM = POLITICAL COMMUNISM
2) Cosmopolitanism(political communism) has failed everywhere its tried, just as has economic communism(socialism), and commons communism (libertarianism).Yet people pursue heterogeneous polities despite only homogenous polities exiting poverty, corruption, low trust, and tribalism.
SOCIAL MEDIA IS AS ACCURATE AS PILLOW TALK
3) BTW: As far as I know, (a) we over-report compromise, and over-demonstrate on conflict. (b) we self-report more honestly online than in person. (c) We most accurately self-report in conflict (from a position of physical safety.) IOW: social media = “political pillow talk”.
