Spewing hate because someone doesn’t agree with your politics is so mind-boggling. Spewing vicious, insulting, demeaning words and not even caring who it is you’ve thrown it at is simply mean-spirited and self demeaning. Having a difference of opinion is what makes us human. Discussing and debating differences is what makes humans civilized. Civilized humans discuss, debate and agree to disagree without calling each other demeaning names or resorting to violence. When civility deteriorates and resorts to hateful rhetoric and violence we lose some of our humanity and become like a pack of wild animals. Each pack attacks every other pack it comes across. There’s always one pack that demands every other pack defer to them no matter the circumstances.
We have two main packs in the United States right now. One pack used to be the alpha pack and ruled with an iron fist. They didn’t care what the other pack wanted or needed only their wants and needs were addressed. Now the tables have turned and there’s a new pack in control and the losing pack is fighting with everything it has to destroy the new alpha pack. They are using every trick in the book to bring down the new alpha and destroying everyone that supports them. Of course both packs have been the alpha at different times which is what has kept our country balanced until recently when civility seems to have disappeared.
People are getting hurt both physically and mentally because of a difference of opinion. Hurt feelings, hurt ego’s, hateful speech, destructive violence and the list goes on and nobody wants to stop, listen or compromise. Let’s just keep spewing hatred and violence in the name of politics. The hell with civility and common sense. I’m right and your wrong so I’ll make you conform to my way or I’ll do everything in my power to crush you until you see it my way…that is the mantra of the losing pack.
It doesn’t matter which pack one identifies with, the point being that civility needs to return to our citizens and lose the hateful, mean-spirited attacks on one another. Our country needs to regain its desire to work through its differences instead of demanding compliance. Until we do our country will continue to have a pack mentality instead of a unifying society.
