In reply to comment: Wow (see in situ)

It is fascinating to read comment sections ..

.. on partisan red / blue websites.

It's a window into the minds of the people that have willing jumped in to either one of the camps.

In the comment sections you can see in the light of day how powerful the manipulation techniques are in getting people emotionally invested in defending "their position" against the idiots on the "other side"

While we - the people that are outside or have broken free of the manipulation - can sit back and laugh / puke / cry at the idiots on BOTH sides :)

Yes. It IS sad.
