You know what might ease tensions? If everyone took a break from political shows, web sites, radio, and news for a while. Take the soap opera drama that passes as news and just detox for a good few days, weeks, months, or years. Maybe the superficial hate will dissappear. Maybe the imaginary lines that have been drawn will fade away. Because if not this constant division will get to the point where you can’t divide society any further. That is when you divide by zero and everything falls apart.
