A Dream Deferred: facebook war of words

I have friends who have become very mindful of what they post on facebook, which is very sad, for fear of getting into an online fight with people. In our country’s current political and social atmosphere there is so much animosity towards one another that people cannot even feel comfortable disagreeing any longer. This saddens me because political, social, and public discourse are some of the bedrocks of our country’s ability to have consensus and move forward. When intelligent people are allowed to disagree, debate, and reach an understanding good things come from this and fairness prevails. With this component absent our country is absent some of the elements which make it great. We are America because of our difference and not in spite of them.
