Thanks for the comment, Matt. I’m really glad this one struck a cord with you. It is super difficult to do in this day and age and it’s just easier to not engage in a time with division. I have always mostly agreed with leftist ideas, but usually never the shouting and visceral methods of persuasion. I also forgot what an election year is like. It hasn’t been this way since 2016, which might contribute a bit to it.

At the end of the day, it’s easier just not to engage. And safer. Thanks for this comment. I don’t know if it’s the same level in the UK with Boris/Corbyn.
