All sides tend toward lunacy

Some very successful Internet/social businesses have been built and are sustained primarily by feeding the outrage beast. In the long run, this mindset only leads us to isolate and vilify each other, increasingly making those we disagree with the Other. It is time for an anti-outrage campaign. One way to make it happen would be for highly partisan people to start publishing true and fair information about their opponents. . .saying: “I don’t like this person, but here’s what they actually say and what they’re actually doing. And why.”
How does one  not vilify the Swampers? 

The model is  unsupportable, most of the parties on either side being welfare bums.  The proper response is nullification and secession.
