Whenever people think, "Wow the world has never been so divisive or crazy", I remind myself, "Have people forgotten about the 1960s? People were being assasinated left and right - the Kennedy borthers, MLK, Malcolm X, etc. "
We think it's bad now but no prominent people are being executed.
I've asked my parents about this several times and never gotten a good answer.
Is it just human nature to think whatever time you are living in is the craziest. This seems tame compared to the 60s. Can you imagine if Biden was executed during the last election?
LRC note. We changed the word executed to assassinate.
