Because people are idiots.
Its not that its a new trend, it is accelerating quickly however.
We as a nation worked hard to eliminate mob rule. But look around at the new wave of divisions being laid out. Administrations, both municipal and otherwise sidestepping the laws, officers in no win situations where use of force is common, demonstrations that are not peaceful, becoming more fervent and impassioned.
No, its not new but now it feels different. Its a little more edgy then the past decade.
And yes, people can be idiots. Thats why I think we shouldn't argue with them.
