On losing friendships. Are we becoming uncivil?

Have you ever lost a friend over politics? Sadly I have. Some of my long-time friendships crumbled over a difference in political or cultural ideology fueled by the current nature of the devise discourse in our societies these days.

Sadly, it was bound to happen when the standard approach to debate these days is “you are either with us or against us.” You are either with the good side or the bad side. There are no nuances or middle ground.

Join us or leave us.
