This year’s Consider This series will explore what brings us together and what drives us apart. Who is included in our democracy, and who is left out? Why do we sometimes fear people who are different from us or don’t belong to the same groups we do? What leads people to embrace hate and violence, and what might lead them in other directions?
In this series, we’ll look at communities large and small, including the families we’re born into and the ones we choose; clubs, gangs, and societies; and ethnicities, faiths, and nations. Expect to hear about the challenges of this moment in history, globally and locally.
