Experimenting with How to Communicate

I’m experimenting with how to communicate to folks, given the increase in oppressive, irrational actions coming from the current administration and segments of the U.S. population.

Lots of my family, friends, and acquaintances use Facebook. As more strident and pro-Trump posts appear, I’ve felt stymied, not knowing how to respond in a way that is useful. Often I remain silent. I have also experimented with posting facts about events and situations, my own philosophy (compatible with RC theory), and information about marches and rallies. Folks from all perspectives have responded—for example, to my data about the uptick in bomb threats against U.S. Jewish institutions and about climate warming. However, people’s responses, or lack thereof, are often in line with their political leanings.

What are you trying? What seems to work?
