Yeah but alienation is different from radicalization. I think some people will tune out from politics entirely but others will let it consume their entire life. Those people in the latter category, on either side, will be the instigators in political violence unseen since Weimar Germany.
Thanks from Gordy

T.v. ratings on sports are going down. I think it is because the sheeple are getting their "us vs them" fill thru politics and their psyche is not craving it from sports.

No, it's fear. It's simple fear. Fear drives the mills of modern man. It's all about fear. On the right, it's fear of being driven to extinction and fear of the loss of society, of culture, and of civilization. On the left, it's fear of turning back the clock, fear of resistance. Quite honestly, both sides are in fear of breaking from the pack.
Thanks from Panther, Sabcat and Gordy

Oh no it's definitely fear. Everybody involved is afraid of something as Peter pointed out.
