I see a lot of distrust of our opposite peers in this country, thinking in particular of red vs. blue, or rural vs. urban. I've wondered if it might help to have a 'rural/urban' student exchange program within the US to help foster understanding of the way of life and perspectives of Americans in different parts of the country. Some do exist, but they seem relatively rare. Similar to an international student exchange, but a whole lot cheaper, accessible, and potentially very constructive. This is one of potentially many ways to foster a peaceful progressive revolution.
