When you represent a radical side or opinion on things, you also close other ways of thinking. Imagine a radical left and right party debating a particular topic. Most of the time, they are so blinded by their belief that they have forgotten how to listen and how others see the world.
Try not to be that type as we can learn a lot from each other. Go and talk to other people with different opinions and views and try to understand where they come from. A personal approach is much more effective than tracking the news. You do not have to agree with them, just try to understand them. Many people stay in their own communities and watch political news from their couches.
