Folks are gradually cooling off. Its the media trying to keep sh** stirred up . They still live the mantra "the more you stir sh** the more it stinks". Making a fortune off of discourse.
But the truth is: Nazis and Maoists aren't hiding around every corner, vying for control of your sociopolitical soul.

All thanks to the internet. Whenever something happens anywhere in the world, you are immediately notified through the internet. Then the media takes the event and milks it as hard as it can until it dies and then some. I have a 14 year old cousin who tells me he has nightmares at least once a week of North Korea nuking us. I hope we eventually get used to having he media blasted at us 24/7 and learn to regulate it internally.
