5.0 out of 5 stars Solace for all us raging moderates!

September 5, 2018

Format: Prime Video Verified Purchase

As an independent voter, I try to stay true to my principles when approaching an issue as well as when I vote. I have voted both sides of the aisle for years. That said, you pick your battles and compromise. This documentary is all about that magic word compromise, not just compromise but also avoiding shouting one's position and demonizing those who have a different political opinion. In thirty minutes the documentary gives an excellent history and overview of politics in California and how, along with a national trend, it's become so extremely partisan. The documentary is clear, rational and offers hope!

5.0 out of 5 stars What Every American Should Understand about the Price of Polarization

September 10, 2018

Format: Prime Video Verified Purchase

The movie makes you yearn for an earlier time when civility was the order of the day; when hate speech was not the daily headline; when Members of Congress fixed problems instead of hurling insults on talk TV. The film is a call to action to those who believe ours is a Democracy worth saving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable watch

September 8, 2018

Format: Prime Video Verified Purchase

This doc offers great insight on how our current political environment has emerged from the twenty-four hour news cycle to year-round campaigning. Worth a watch for everyone and particularly people who don't want to "pick a side" but rather want to find some common ground and pragmatic solutions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, quick way to understand centrism

September 10, 2018

Format: Prime Video

I thought the film was a good pace, non-preachy way to understand how centrism sits between left and right and what it is trying to achieve philosophically. The filmmakers, focusing on California experts and currently-elected officials, provide a view that can easily be generalized to the national level. Great thing to show in a high-school civics class or freshman poli sci class.
