People in the States don’t know how to have political debate. It is completely pointless to talk politics, because the moment you state your opinion, you are automatically classified as moron, a part of “them” and potentially declared terrorist, homophobe, communist or welfare recepient.
Stating your opinion, expressing your thoughts under the first is complete social suicide. People don’t like to hear anything that contradicts their world. So we are mutually creating these social bubbles that are creating alternate bubble realities that smother us, and give us fake world view.
And at the end of the day, nobody knows jack shit and what is going on around us. Romans did this. It was called “Divide and conquer”.
