What if…?

What would happen if in every town or every neighborhood, for an entire year, everyone — communists, liberals, moderates, conservatives, tea partiers, neo-Nazis — would get together for one hour a week to just talk. To talk about anything and everything except those things that they disagree on. No politics. No challenges, no accusations, no questioning. They would just talk about their families, their experiences, their jobs, their friends, their communities, their vacations, their hopes and aspirations. Anything except the things they disagree on. And what would happen if this were continued for a second year, and then a third? People getting to know each other, as humans — proud, fearful, cautious, curious, daring. What would happen? How would our politics change?
Again, just wondering.
