(The Organic Prepper) Let’s talk about the blatant efforts to cause an irreparable rift between the people of our country.
I often compare current events to parenting, and this week is no different. Everything purported to be news is just more bickering.
It’s like when your kids are behaving like brats, and no matter what one kid does, the other kid jumps on it and blows it completely out of proportion like it’s the worst thing in the history of the world. Every outrage is multiplied a thousandfold. Kid 2 drops Kid 1’s pencil when passing it over and suddenly, Kid 2 is accused of a Machiavellian scheme to impale Kid 1 through the heart with a stake that was only disguised as a pencil.
The difference is, the path America is on leads someplace far worse than each side being sent to their rooms to consider their actions and figure out how to get along. We’re headed down a path of division that has become so extreme that it’s hard to see a way back.
America is like a pot of water with the lid on. Unless some of the pressure is released or the heat is turned down, hostility is going to boil over the top and make a huge mess all over the stove.
But here’s the truly scary part. This has to be deliberate. While people still had vehement political disagreements previous to this year, they were not this extreme.
Today, I want to talk about three ways we’re being divided. And not only are we being divided, but the crisis is being egged on by the biased media on both sides. It’s being multiplied by celebrities in Hollywood who are completely out of touch with everyday people. It’s being perpetuated by the politicians who seem to have forgotten they are supposed to be in positions of leadership, not the bullies on the playground who are intent on taking control of the best slide. And never forget the education system, which now seems to be nothing more than an organize effort to stir up discontent.
