Writer calls out party divisiveness
Placeholder Image
In 1796, George Washington released his famous Farewell Address that admonished the citizens of the infant America of four primary things, but his arguably most famous warning is the one regarding the divisiveness of political parties, which he feared would incite internal conflicts, which is exactly what this election has caused. An unfortunately large proportion of social media posts are vicious attacks that don’t actually argue about politics. Hillary and Trump both have political views, and that’s fine if you disagree with them, but the rift is deeper than just politics.
