I think both sides, but moreso the right, are pushed into echo chambers where what they believe about the other side is nonsense.
You choose to believe that the other footballfans are a little more wrong than you. Also, echo-nonsense has been going on for centuries, it is not something new - yes, the chatrooms are new, but ages ago you'd still only visit travelling preachers of your own religion.

I think the fact they divide into tribes and don't talk is destroying society but in the first instance, I think the divide between people who think we should help people and people who think we should punish failure is very real
If either republican or democrats talk, they are doing "public relations". They preach their ideologies (that aren't exclusive to their side) without any effort or any regard for what might be good for everyone.
