21 But perhaps because the racial politics of the hearings were so absorbing, I did not give much thought in 1991 to another question to which the Thomas confirmation hearings gave rise: In examining Thomas’s relationship with Hill, were we as a nation raising the bar for the conduct of powerful men with the women in their professional orbit, or opening the door to what has been called sexual McCarthyism? The answer to this question, when considered in light of the last near decade and the impeachment trial, is, I think, both.
In real life, what we may call “polarization games” A Case Study in Group Polarization (with Warnings for the Future) 21 are repeated, usually quite frequently. It is here that movement toward extreme positions, and misunderstanding of what opponents actually do and think, are especially likely. Of course nothing I have said here demonstrates that group polarization moves people in bad directions. We can imagine many contexts in which it is entirely appropriate for people to end up with a stronger version of their initial position; perhaps discussion clarifies matters, and perhaps the argument pool, limited though it inevitably is, makes people see things in a clearer light.
These were case studies in group polarization. Those who spoke with one another fortified their own preexisting views, and made them all the more extreme. In this light it is not surprising to find the change of heart among Republicans, such as Henry Hyde, who initially contended that impeachment should occur only if there were bipartisan support for it. Once the logic of group polarization had set in, his moderate view was bound to shift. Of Representatives and Constituents Of course there are some differences between the legislative process and the contexts in which group polarization has been studied, above all because members of Congress are subject to external political sanctions.
