>>I'm not trying to play "gotcha" with you
Yeah, i understand what you're saying.
By the time one has decided to become 'Outraged!', you've almost, by definition, built a case in your head for how justified you are.
Civil discourse has been dragged down.
You know how when you watch football highlights from the mid 80's, and you can't believe how small/thin the players look?
I think if you juxtaposed our current 'news' with that of 30+ years ago, you'd get the same bump.
People will have to value it over mudslinging before it will return.
Maybe this whole sh*tstorm will be a purge, like a wildfire, with a reset to follow.
