A perfect description of political campaigns.

    Same as it ever was. Rational arguments are simply met with targeted hate, name-calling, and other distractions aimed at raising emotional outcries. This is mass psychology 101.

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over, and over again and expecting a different result. Those caught up in the emotional orgies and hope for a different result are a dummied down majority.
