Ya know Ponderer I’ve long thought about that. How much of this discord is domestically generated or how much of it is exacerbated and written by foreign trolls. It’s unrelenting and usually after an article about any given subject, depending on if comments are allowed, one can almost make up the “outrage” depending on the theme of the article. And this just gets pounded in over and over again.
I try to avoid group discussions on sites that are particularly prone to one side or the other. I have concluded that for most things-except science and mathematics- the “truth” is somewhere in the middle. Or at least I think it to be so. I hope I have made sense in this comment.
