The Center Cannot Hold

Obviously, America has become extremely polarized politically. I worry about the future of our democracy given the current state of affairs. Could somebody please explain to me how we’re supposed to resolve our differences when we’re in a verbal straightjacket when it comes to talking about politics in pubs & taverns?

 

Taverns are where people congregate on a regular basis, and I don’t believe people are more apt to become violent if they discuss/debate political matters. Violent people act out for thousands of reasons. Our soldiers are fighting around the globe supposedly to spread/defend freedom & democracy but we don’t defend them here.

 

So, we’re not allowed to discuss the slaughter in El Paso for example because it involves politics. Our nation’s social fabric is being torn apart and we’re supposed to sit silently by?
