Love keeps the thread of connection intact in times when all around us we see the human fabric becoming threadbare.

It brings us closer to understanding the incomprehensible -- and closer to vision, imagination, humility, curiosity, commonality, and loving action. Read on for more on applying this to people we deem "conspiracy theorists", and those who are on the other end of the political divide.
