- Embrace our inner wall-builder. The more we know about our own impulses to find enemies, the sooner we’ll recognize it when people are trying to manipulate us for their selfish ends.
- Give your wall-builder a place to play. You can channel the urge to find heroes and enemies into healthy competition.
- Choose your real-life villains wisely. We can target bad actors and real social problems, instead of indulging in the dangerous temptation to paint whole groups of people with the same tarring brush.
- Find ways to know the people who seem alien.
