The American section of my social media feed is almost exclusively young middle class liberals trying to be writers. Several of them reacted to Trump’s victory by demanding that any Republican voters on their friend lists immediately unfriend them. (They couldn’t even be bothered to find out for themselves which of their family or friends voted for Trump.) Shouldn’t we, who want to call ourselves writers, take the opposite approach, i.e. not write people off?
