    It’s not only attention, but the entire divided-brain-model that is very relevant to “politics.” My book,The Right Way to Flourish: Reconnecting with the Real World is devoted to exploring the links between the brain and the state of the world; but through the lens of Iain’s work. I have been blogging for quite a while, but added many posted during the last US election cycle linking politics and the brain. They are too long to copy and paste here, but you can see a couple of examples by pasting these links into your browser (I don’t know how to make them active links.).

    I have also been trying to get this stuff into the oped pages of US media, but no luck so far. They are not ready to deal with this topic. I hope that those who have signed on to this group will get active in spreading the word that the divided-brain-model is very, very important in understanding what is happening in our political worlds and offers a way around the stumbling blocks created by the current way we think about thinking.
