Hilton Austin Downtown

Rapid changes in tech, government, and the media have had unforeseen consequences in America. Tim Urban believes these challenges are compounded by the traditional “horizontal” ideological axis and offers an innovative tool from his bestselling book: a vertical axis that can add back critical nuance to our thinking and conversations. He calls for us to abandon the polarizing “left” and “right” in favor of using a more useful framework: “high-rung” and “low-rung”. We’ll explore how this more nuanced spectrum can prevent rigid binaries, conformity and groupthink - in and out of the classrooms.
