    the rise of electronic media and the way that we get our information these days.  When people got their information through print media, even though the writing was inflammatory and things were partisan, a written argument required a certain logic to make its case.  With the rise of electronic media, the image is primary and images play directly to emotion.  People sitting around watching Fox News all day are having all of their emotional buttons pushed by the images they are seeing.  Logic is gone as emotion is now the primary decision maker.  Sadly, I think that this situation will lead to the demise of the Republic.
