Oregon's own Sharon Schuman pushes for something she calls "dialogic freedom" -- freedom to say what you think, within certain guidelines. 

She goes back in history for examples, in her book Freedom and Dialogue in a Polarized World.  It's a helpful reminder that today's polarization is not new. 

Sharon Schuman joined us in 2014, and we replay that interview here.
