Over the course of the past few months there have been a variety of protests in countries Honduras, Hong Kong, France, and most recently Georgia. Each country has their own issues with how the governments are operating, and each country has seen demonstrators take to the street. In this video we take a look at each country, and give background on why citizens of these countries have taken on their governments. https://youtu.be/ibmUY23XOUM #protest #HongKong #Honduras #France #Georgia

A new study by More in Common (authors of the Hidden Tribes study) shows a perception gap between republicans and democrats The study shows that both republicans and democrats misjudge their idealogical counterparts. For democrats, the gap widens as they become more educated. For republicans the gap remains constant regardless of education. In general, people on both sides imagine a caricature of their counterparts. Below are a link to a writeup in The Atlantic as well as the source of the study. Note: I took the test and found that some of the questions weren't clearly identified as "disagree" questions (hence asking the negative of what I thought the question asked). It isn't clear if the questions used in the original study have this same issue, or if it occurred when the questionnaire was incorporated into the website. https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2019/06/republicans-and-democrats-dont-understand-each-other/592324/ https://perceptiongap.us/
