As long as there's social ugliness period, it will show up anywhere,
especially in times of little training or role models in manners, morals, and
social skills in general in a society. The best one can do in any situation when
it arises is to call it for what it is and turn to focus on something positive.
Even in an ugly world there are choices.
How about turning off what offends you instead of banning people from the
internet or tv you disagree with.
Best way to keep political stuff off your social media is not to post any
yourself and to ignore comments from those that insist on posting it on their
feed. If a single person's opinion has been changed by what they've
read from a friend's feed, I'd be very surprised. People with manners
understand it is a poor idea to bring up politics at a social gathering, why do
those same people think it is okay on social media? Add to that, that much of
what is posted on social media, perhaps the majority, is one or the other
side's propaganda, and you have really obnoxious nonsense.
