Today’s political debate is extremist and anti-expert, replacing any inclination toward trusting knowledgeable individuals to create nuanced solutions with the requirements that everyone has to have an opinion on everything and everyone’s opinion is equally valid.

Even my cat is more nuanced and complex than political debate considers entire nations.
