"Divided We Sit" graphic

A response to "United We Stand." The graphic points out how polarized and politically alienated so many of us feel due to T.V. and other one-way media. It's also about how the lack of public dialogue makes us see the other sides as caricatures (thus the people with political symbols instead of heads).

MeaningMap is radically new, free software that can help people communicate even if they disagree, and can show people the true landscape of political issues.
