Hi:

While I am certain that ignorance plays a role in citizen noninvolvement, I'm not convinced that's the main reason which, I believe, has to do with the rancorous ways most political leaders choose to react to those with whom they disagree. What most of us see in these interactions is a blend of snarky condescension, which is a big turn-off. In my experience, this is often different from the way "average" people deal with those they disagree with - a blend of ignoring, cautious conversing, and sometime, at least, the hint of a common understanding. It is, I believe, these differing interaction styles that creates many of us to shut down.

Best wishes,

Peter Altschul, MS www.peteraltschul.com
