I'm fond of referencing Razib Khan's observation—and auguring—about how we haven't had our Sulla... yet. Trust in institutions, and the processes of those institutions, is plummeting. Across the Western world it increasingly feels as though every dispute involves bad blood. Good faith disagreements are the exception.
Do not expect millennials or Zs to arrest that trend. Expect them to accelerate it, on both sides of the political chasm and in every fissure all the way down into the abyss.
