The left continues to vilify the right.

Instead, they should engage on the underlying concerns.

Its the same dynamic that led to Trump’s election as president.

“You’re evil.”

“Fuck you.” and proceeds to escalate rhetoric and actions.

The right has felt overwhelmed and under attack. Partially, because the economics of immigration and job loss (among other issues) are hard to grasp.

They’re instead taken in by simple “common sense” like:

“Immigrants take our jobs.”

“If there a 100 jobs, and then 10 immigrants come, there are now 10 less jobs.”

Its simple and seems to make sense based on life experience.

Its not correct.

To overcome it we’d need simple metaphors to explain the complexities of the global economy.

Any good simple explanations?
