My Divided Country

Everybody’s complaining about how divided my country is, and everyone is blaming the other guy for the division.

“I’m sick of how divided and angry we are! If those damn Democrats would just …”

This is what Culture Wars produce. A bunch of people who hate the other side and insist on the rightness of their cause.

Is it possible to get beyond this?

I ask the question knowing that I am guilty of inflammatory rhetoric. I love the snarky line. I love the rush of adrenaline that self-righteousness generates. “Hello, my name is Perry, and I’m addicted to expressing contempt for people who disagree with me.”

God help us. Are we a failed country?
