Definitely a problem!I think part of the reason why we have become divided is we are isolated, for the most part, from our neighbors, our community. Many Americans who use to go outside and talk to neighbors, have block parties, enjoy community activities, no long do this. Many Americans now spend their time on the computer, or they are watching Netflix or playing video games. Not much time for anything else.
To be honest, I don't know my neighbors, never see them outside, never have a conversation with them, never interact. Well, there was one exception. The people who lived next door to me for 20 years, just moved. We did interact once in awhile. He's a police officer, has a wife and young daughter. Nice people. I don't know their politics. Never asked.
