Interesting piece from Rauch that explains how we got to where we are.
…” according to Pew, majorities of highly politically engaged Republicans (62%) and highly politically engaged Democrats (70%) said the other party makes them feel “afraid.” When one ponders those and other such findings, one is forced to reflect that the word “hate” is too strong, but it is, alas, in the right ballpark for inter-party feeling right now. What we fear, we tend also to hate.”
Thought this was an excellent explanation of where we are, how we got here, and some ways to save ourselves.
Thanks to George Will in today’s VP for referencing this piece.
