This is done to prevent actual dialogue between actual Americans.
Because if we talk we might figure out we're being consciously deliberately manipulated.
By people who know more about how our brains work, how we take in and process new information, than we do.
Like the crooked mechanic who replaces your "muffler bearings" because you don't know there's no such thing.
But the divisive thing is definitely coming out of the monolithic conservative media stream. "If you oppose the war, you're hurting the troops" for example.
If you don't know what I am talking about, take note of how quickly new "talking points"/terms permeate Fox News, talk radio and the conservative blogosphere. Its pretty apparent they get daily updates. Theres no way it spreads that fast "naturally". They're mostly owned by the same group of people.
The left does this as well, don't get me wrong, its just not as organized and effective as the conservative flavor.
