Maximilian Kasy: Mother Jones’s Kevin Drum more recently wondered: “Why do Republicans tell such obvious lies?” A common, though apparently ineffective, response to this frustration is to double down by discussing more facts. When arguing about politics, it is often helpful to construct the best possible version of your opponent’s reasoning — a task admittedly not always made easy by the current administration. In this spirit, though, maybe the issue is not conservatives’ ignorance of facts, but rather a fundamental difference of values. Taking this point of view seems essential for effective communication across the political divide.
