The state of the union is fractured

Editors, Washington Examiner

At the core of our country right now is far too much discord amounting to hatred. We have lost the ability to debate civilly. We are losing shared customs and shared culture. Our values are diverging so dramatically that we increasingly believe opposing views are not merely incorrect but intolerable and can be held only by those who are fools or are evil. Recent weeks bear this out. A society where every cultural occurrence is a culture-war battlefield is not a healthy one. The state of this union is not strong.
