Imagine a world where you can disagree with a neighbor on a political position…yet, you still invite then for a backyard barbecue, to you daughter’s birthday party…or even trust them to watch your kids…without ever considering their political positions.
That is community. That is what we gave up. This is a casualty of the Information Age coupled with our innate tribal nature. And our capitalistic polarizing media. It has made me sad for years.
I had thought we could have honest disagreement and still be civil, still be friends. I can see now…that did not happen where I live.
