Making everything about politics is harming our social fabric


The endless politicization of everything…is making people crazy and depressed.

-Dave Rubin

Diverse viewpoints are a sign of a healthy body politic. Who you vote for is nobody’s business. Besides, if we cared about politics as much as the hullabaloo indicated, more than 56% of us would vote in presidential elections (2016).

One of the things I really hate about…a certain kind of the Left is the idea that the personal is the political. And to me, if I disagree with someone politically, that this would have any ramification on our friendship is so profoundly disturbing…
