Description

In spring 2019, more than 17,000 Europeans from 33 countries signed up to have a political argument with a complete stranger. They were part of "Europe Talks," a project that organizes one-on-one conversations between people who disagree -- sort of like a Tinder for politics. Editor Jochen Wegner shares the unexpected things that happened when people met up to talk -- and shows how face-to-face discussions could get a divided world to rethink itself.

I participated and as expected it was a controversial yet pleasant conversation. Because in the real world you can actually talk to and WITH each other and even come to certain agreements, in stark contrast to the debates we see on social media.
