The polarization of American society is getting out of control.

In many ways, what is happening in America in 2017 is akin to what happened in America in 1968. However, there’s a clear difference between what is happening this year, and what happened nearly 50 years ago.

Today, mindless partisanship (and, sometimes, plain old mindlessness) and the propensity to take violent action seem to be at an all-time high.

What happened yesterday in Alexandria, VA is but one example of American decay.  People around the country—from ordinary Joe’s to political elites—really must begin to pull together.

Today is Thursday, the 15th of June, 2017.

It is not a normal day.
