The Division Hell

There's nothing about this I don't love, because Maher is spot-on across the board -- especially his point about how we've politicized so much of our culture that no one accepts a common reality anymore. We have the conservative view and the liberal view and each side comes to the table seemingly not with its own set of opinions but its own set of facts. Is one side of that equation far worse these days? Absolutely. But the end result of the political fragmenting of our society, largely through niche media, is furious chaos, and not much more.

Like with so many of the wrongs that have occurred in past decades, the fringe conservatives caused the problem, moderate conservatives were too timid to do anything, and the liberals did their best to complain before going along with it.
