This is not a uniquely American problem. As the world became more connected, through travel, commerce, and communications, so too did our struggles become more intertwined. The disenfranchised are everywhere. In many ways, we are louder than ever, shouting at one another through the Internet, a click away from everyone in the world who shares our values. Yet, we are also more isolated than ever before, preferring to surround ourselves with Media that depicts a reality we wish to see. When opposing views reach us, we deplore them, demonizing the people who hold them. And no matter how much we scream, no one is listening.
