Matthew McConaughey is not in extremes, at least not in politics … and so he says the intolerance and condescension must stop, and he has a solution.
MC jumped up Russell Brand‘s podcast,’ Under the Skin ‘, and they talked about politics … both here in the United States and across the pond. Russell sees a lot of similarities in terms of vitriol to “the other side.”
That’s what got Matt started … suggesting the trick is to meet in the middle, which sounds impossible, but listen to him.
For starters, he wants to find a way to measure the science behind each party’s POVs and their values, such as actually measuring it. It’s somewhat difficult to understand exactly what he means, but he seems to be talking about quantifying how liberal views / policies and their conservative counterparts have benefited the country as a whole over time.
After that, Matt says that both sides will have to recognize that their fellow Americans across the aisle have value, and that while they may disagree with everything they believe … that their principles and positions are worth something in and of themselves. to be.
Matthew goes after Twitter’s blue check marks and other so-called liberal elites on the shores of this country and says they are intolerant to the right – yet he has also been criticized on the right.
He also suggests that the media doesn’t paint a fair picture on either side … which is why the average Joe and Jane don’t believe what they read and hear.
