Culture War
Many from both the right and the left bemoan the state of the American culture today. Whether it is the lack of positive images in TV, movies, music, politicians, sports figures, police in schools and more, freedom and morality are discussed as being in conflict with each other. Benjamin Franklin once wrote on the subject: "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need for masters." This should ring true to you today as we debate not only our eroding culture, but the role of government in our lives. Are culture and the need for more government control more connected than we realize?

'You are not crazy'

from The Gray Area:

The left is saying stop complaining about everything, Karen, you are a racist. Just lower your expectations. The right is saying we are all purposely instructed not to notice what is happening before our eyes. Is this a riot, a protest or an insurrection?

This is a critically important concept in America today. It gets to one of the reasons why we are so divided, emotional and prefer making everything political. To explain this phenomenon, I am republishing a post from September, 2020 titled, "Gaslighting explained - You are not Crazy".

If you want broader context on this issue, here are a few more gaslighting posts, stories & examples compiled by The Gray Area:
