Incivility in the face of inhumanity and insanity

About issues of civility
 
Maybe the truth of the matter is that we are not debating and negotiating any more. We are in the midst of a war, a civil war. Those on the other side are the other side’s enemy and not their fellow citizens. An ugly truth? But genuine truth? I have come to think so. How can one deal diplomatically with those who support policies that bring misery to other human beings? We have negotiated with such people for a very long time, allowed many to be sacrificed as we negotiated. What that negotiating has led to is Trump. End of discussion.
