polarization

By Any Means Necessary

The Inauguration Day demonstrations can serve as an object lesson for many Americans. First, they will give us a good picture of the bullet we dodged, the type of PC-induced intolerance that would have been more broadly infused into America had Hillary Clinton won the presidency. Second, we’ll get a really good inspection of what political correctness looks like in its more advanced stage—after it’s morphed literally into mob behavior.

David French, National Review

What remains clear is that America is more politically polarized than ever. The Left is growing more Left, and the Right is growing more Right. This is entirely consistent with other patterns, including the polarization of American religious practice. America is growing both more secular and more religious, more liberal and more conservative. The middle is vanishing.
