Loving Your Country, Loving Yourself --Mark Gerzon's TEDxVail Talk

On January 6, 2017, Mark Gerzon gave this TED talk at Vail, Colorado, where he talks about his personal journey to transpartisanship as an example of a much broader movement and cultural change that is needed thoughout America.  Just as he came to understand he, personally, has both conservative and liberal roots and conservative and liberal beliefs, so too, he asserts, does everyone--and so too, does America itself.  But instead of pitting these beliefs against each other, as we so often do, he calls for people to "love their whole selves" and "their whole country" by bringing the two sides together for the betterment of all.
