The sun has set on the days of:
- dispassionately considering all sides of an issue
- seeking to honor good intentions and results where found
- being honest about shortcomings in one's own thinking
- trying to build up the person on the other end of the conversation, rather than destroy them
I myself have a handful of people on here and Twitter that I just no longer give the benefit of the doubt, after enough false accusations of racism, plagiarism (the latest farce), and seeking POTUS-cide. I mostly succeed in finding amusement in this.
