My advice is not to focus on that somewhat sexist first headline, printed in red. The content of the actual commentary is pretty exceptional, and because I think it's worth reading, I've reprinted Smith's commentary in its entirety (see below). You can also click this link to see Smith's commentary online. Online, the second headline reads: "A Friendship For A More Tolerant America."
White ==> Black
Black ==> White
Democrat ==> Republican
Republican ==> Democrat
You get the idea!
No "app" is really needed, of course. But how do we get people to do what Civitello has done? Unless we find an effective way for people to learn how to "change their minds," the debate and discussion, the dialogue and disagreement that comprise the very first stage of a healthy politics, will be aborted from the start.
In fact, isn't that exactly where we are now? I think it is, and if we're worried about totalitarian political solutions being imposed upon us (which lots of my friends are), the only way we can avoid that eventuality is by making real democracy work, and real democracy means that people must be able to change their minds, based on their real interactions with real people.
Smith's commentary suggests to me that we ought to be looking for a methodology for metanoia.
And we had better find such a methodology fast, too, before it's too late! App or not, Civitello's idea is worth pursuing:
A FRIENDSHIP FOR A MORE TOLERANT AMERICA
