When you come right down to it, only thing we are polarized about is lesser evil. We accept evil as a given, then argue, debate and vote about degree. Do you know why? It is because smarter people than we want it that way. They write our laws, control our leaders, our finances, our educations and our tastes. They choose political candidates and finance their campaigns. There is no aspect of American life they do not influence or control to some degree. They are reason America is completely worthy of world’s contempt. It is not necessary we know their names or where they live. We can call them democracy and make everything OK.
Abe Lincoln was probably not first to say a house divided cannot stand but saying is true enough. America was divided in its revolutionary beginning and has been all along. The most unification it has ever known has been to win and wage war. Now that we are war weary, or soon will be, we will fall into abyss we have been teetering on more than two hundred years. It won’t be pretty and neither will it be prevented by some charismatic uniter.
Polarity is good, though my bi -polar friends and those close to them might argue point. It’s as natural as night and day. Beware great uniters who, like Stalin and Hitler would merge day and night into endless skies of gray. Beware war mongers who receive their orders from powers unelected. Beware holy men deceiving in name of God. Beware ignorance that leads to destruction. Seek saving light so skillfully concealed.
