We’re more tolerant today than we’ve ever been, but we’re also more likely to wall ourselves off from those who hold opposing points of view. As a result, the latitude to lead lives of our own choosing allows and sometimes compels us to narrow the horizons of our individual experience. We’re right to celebrate the nation’s growing aversion to outright bigotry. Few things have been more startling than America’s broadening embrace of civil rights.
