(5 min. read) - There is a kind of political division rising in our society that is poisonous to democracy; because it is poisonous to any relationship. In the U.S. a politic of lies, logic fallacies, and unfairness culminated in the January 6th 2021 insurrection at the capitol. If you normalize this kind of behavior in any group, especially when there is too little agreement building and too little accomplishment, people lose faith in the group. This is how, historically, fascists have dismantled faith in republican governance. There is so much confusion now about how democracy works that it's important to leverage our personal experience to demystify it.
