I’ll Be There For You Even When You’re On The Other Side
Of course, friendship is its own bridge with others, but could one be friends with someone who is your opposite? With whom you disagree on just about everything? With someone on “the other side?” The answer is yes and that’s what this video is about.
We’ll look at two famous U.S. Supreme Court justices, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia, who disagreed on just about every case that came before them, yet truly adored each other. We’ll look at contemporary political theorists Robert George and Cornell West who also disagree with each other on just about everything, yet consider themselves to be brothers. We’ll look a marathon runners who help a complete stranger to cross the finish line.
In an age where it can seem like one automatically holds another in contempt for opposing political views, and yes while also acknowledging that sometimes the differences really are too stark to mend, there are probably a lot more times when we can be friends with others than we might think possible.
