The continual political battle between Right vs Left & Right, Liberal & Conservative, Democrat & Republican is manufactured. The powers that be use propaganda to fuel hatred and it’s only purpose is to divide us and keep our focus on each other, instead of the things that truly matter.
The media manipulates stories and facts in order to paint extreme caricatures of what each side is and because of this manipulation, people associate these exaggerations with real humans. People become dehumanized and it is easy to harass and physically attack people just for holding different opinions. A war amongst the peasants prevents a war amongst their rulers. It is standard divide and conquer and it’s time we all move past it.
