First, I love your writing and your perspective. Thank you. Also, this is happening in liberal and privileged white conversation, too. And I see it particularly among women. A friend and I were talking recently and she said, “The cannibalism of the people I thought were supposed to be the good guys, is making me sick.” I also agree with what you said about reaching out to people privately when you disagree. I believe we distract ourselves and sabotage the deeper resistance that we want to engage in when we attack generally good-willed people in public media spaces. Anyway — thank you for your persective!
