Alternate Reality

From David Wong of Cracked.com, “How Half of America Lost it’s F**king Mind, an interesting perspective on Trump voters, talking about the urban/rural divide which is why the country looks like a sea of red with blue islands where the cities are. Wong came from the country, the red zones, and moved to the city, the blue zones.

Any time you objectify a person, turn them into an “it”, whether you’re from the city or the country, progressive or right-winger, you have dehumanized and removed that person from the circle of care.  That’s the beginning of hate of the “other.”
