The Ten New Rules of American Politics

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Sep 13, 2023 | Politico

U.S. citizens are increasingly disillusioned with a political system that continues to reward conflict rather than encouraging elected officials to work together to address the country’s mounting problems. Political gerrymandering, where the party in power can draw congressional and legislative lines for their political advantage, is the root cause of the current system that rewards conflict and extreme partisan positions, argues Doug Sosnik in Politico. He suggests that the nation is approaching a tipping point as younger voters care less about politics and more about issues like climate change, a woman’s right to choose, tougher gun control laws, and social inclusion. The country will start to move past the current transitional period of deep division and begin to seek a new national consensus about its future direction.
