Remembering conversations with friends in the late 90s, we felt a giddy hope how the internet would bring together peoples of differing ideologies from around the world, and without our governments in the way, we could find the way for open communication and accepting understanding.

And today, on Facebook, I see this was a naive pipedream as I watch Americans tearing our country apart from the inside.

How do we find common ground in an international community while lustily and willingly finding new ways to hate other Americans? Nice job, my fellow Americans.
