    I think misunderstanding is the wrong word. For decades, the shift of political ideologies has caused many to polarize and become intolerant of anyone who's view differs from theirs.

    The 21st Century has become the century of identity politics.

    We used to be a country of nationalism that embraced political spectrum tied to nationalism. Now nationalism is rapidly, and I mean supersonically declining and nationalism is out and tribalism is in. Politics are the weapons of the tribe.

    Conservatives believe the Liberals ideas and methods are wrong and will hurt the country.

    Leftists believe that Conservatives are evil people and must be destroyed, ideologically, financially and personally.

    I am having to revise my labeling of the other side. "Small "L" liberals are reasonable people. They are willing to listen and exchange information and maybe even modify their position if I am persuasive enough.

    "Big "L" Liberals believe in their cause like it's a religion and will sacrifice their own personal beliefs and morals to achieve the goal. With a lot of help and several stints in Rehab, they might become a rational person again.

    Leftists are the hard-core Socialist, total government control of the people group. They cannot be reasoned with, nor can they be dissuaded from their cause.
