There’s something I find really troubling about American society. I know that’s how a lot of things you read on the internet begin, but this is about something I don’t see written about too much, so hopefully that first sentence will be the only cliche you’ll see. Geez, I’m setting a high bar for myself here.
Anyway, what worries me is that in a country that claims to be full of options, we often seems to only be offered two. Right or wrong, Christian or Muslim, Republican or Democrat, Bike or Scooter (The kids in that photo started beating eachother up after I took it). This dichotomization can be seen on every news show, heard in every conversation, and even felt in every inner struggle. It’s this kind of “If you’re not with us, you’re against us” mentality that can often get us into trouble.
