Driving Force

Recently I saw a program that was suggesting that Anti-Semite White Supremacists were the driving force that kept America out of WW2, while another program was suggesting that the driving force behind the American Revolution was Pro-Slavery White Supremacists! Sorry folks but neither of these claims were in fact the driving forces for keeping America out of one war while starting another.

This isn’t to say that Anti-Semitism and Pro-Slavery didn’t factor into the decisions to make or not make war but to suggest that they were the #1 reason is just reflective of the increasing partisan color divide which has been increasingly driving the political debate in this country.In the end that can be either a very healthy or destructive process that is dependent on people’s ability and willingness to listen to both sides of the argument. Unfortunately that is not currently happening and as a result is becoming increasingly destructive.

And that is all I’m going to say about that.
