Divide and conquer has been a tactic from time immemorial.
The Obama presidency did this with great success, and his legacy continues. Self has become most important. The whole is being segmented into special interests and no one is going to win. There is no tolerance or respect for anyone who thinks differently than the liberals. There is no attempt to work together for the common good. People become dependent on the government and lose their dignity and sense of self worth. Mobs rule the streets, and laws are for breaking. When that government has no more use for them, they will be tossed aside, no better off than they were before.
Be careful what you wish for. The ability to speak well does not assure the ability to govern well.
