We need Arbiters

I was just thinking, the cultural differences in America are starting to get so ridiculously entrenched and polarized that I'm not sure if it is possible for the two political parties to work out their differences.

This has been made worse by the internet and other selective programming that basically allows someone to live in the delusion that their ideas are the only ones, because that is all they come in contact with. This is also made worse by people losing the skill sets (and social skill sets) needed to think critically and solve problems and work together to figure out a solution for everyone.

Okay, anyway, I think this is a looming crisis that is going to result in a disaster. A HUGE DISASTER. Maybe multiple ones.

I'm just saying, having arbiters of a neutral allegiance with no cultural ties who could help figure things out in congress might be a good idea. It won't happen, ha. So how off base am I about our political system being in trouble?

The republic formerly known as the USA is well and truly dead. We are now ruled by a fascist regime and corporatist oligarchs. The next step, as shown by other famous dictators, is to disarm the citizenry so that we can be sent to the gulags/concentration camps. Remember, Arbeit Macht Frei.

S&F OP!!!

The problem I see with your solution is that we first have to understand WHO created this division, you are talking about.

As I see it, it has been a very well done job by the government using psyops(MSM), politics(using race and religion).......

Now lets look at the results of the fallout of these tactics (divide and conquer).....

How do we first make people aware of their cognitive disonnace so that they can actually see the true world surrounding them, when they truely believe what they have been taught and force fed for years????

The ability to unlearn what has been learned is not an easy concept for the majority of those whom have been the most affected by it?!
