    [Information] How curiosity can save you from political tribalism
    Issues like these feel like they should be informed by science, not our political tribes, but sadly, that’s not what happens. There is now a mountain of evidence to show that politics doesn’t just help predict people’s views on some scientific issues; it also affects how they interpret new information. The political lens. Wrong.
