Have you ever had a discussion with someone and you come to realize that they are not just unwilling to but are utterly incapable of even understanding your position? I don’t mean agreeing with it. I mean having the capacity to comprehend it at all. Do you feel as if you and this person are living in two very different versions of the Matrix? I’ve had this experience with several otherwise very bright individuals as of late. Politics will do that, and I have my theories as to why it seems to be more so these days than it used to. I think it illustrates why the calls for “unity” from the ostensible 2020 Election winner will fall on deaf ears for some 71 million Americans, and, more to the point, why the other 72 million will be baffled as to why.
