Reading an article today about Kim Jong Un’s uncle being removed from office and stripped of all of his duties for a list of crimes that at best sound contrived and the comments section is a host of fat jokes, bad hair jokes, and then name calling from both the left and the right in a flurry of Obama-related rantings. Not one serious comment about the state of things in North Korea. It’s the same on nearly every comments section of any number of article comments sections, seemingly regardless of topic. This is the state of American political discourse from the pool of eligible voters. And we have the best system in the world? We can do better; should do better; must do better.
