Claiming that both sides are equally wrong and are damaging this country cannot, by definition, be polarization because it doesn't take any position for either side. Contributing to the left/right polarization of this country cannot happen if you don't take one side or the other.

"Political polarization refers to the cases in which an individual's stance on a given issue, policy, or person is more likely to be strictly defined by their identification with a particular political party (e.g., Democrat or Republican) or ideology (e.g., liberal or conservative)."

Where in any of my posts have any of my stances been driven in any way by a particular party or political ideology?
