Civility

I live in the United States and I’m starting to feel like civility is a thing of the past especially when it comes to politics. I feel like I’m seeing more and more exchanges that go along these lines:

Person 1: You’re an idiot

Person 2: You’re an idiot

Person 1: How can you say such a thing? You’re just a nasty, rude person.

It seems that everyone is fine slinging mud until it’s hurled in their direction and then slinging mud is the absolute worst thing anyone could do even though there’s still mud on the hands of the offended.

The level of polarization that we have allowed ourselves is disheartening.
