The phenomenon certainly isn't new, but the 24x7 media onslaught certainly is. And that's what seems to be qualitatively different this time around.

Of course, I can't speak for someone back in Jefferson's time, but it seems like back then you could just walk away from it and get some peace, but today I can certainly turn my tv off, but everyone else on the planet isn't and the thought-form of divisiveness is omnipresent and seemingly inescapable.

Maybe a second round of the American Civil War would push things far enough to get people to wake up and stop hating...
