    What right wing extremists call religion are extremist forms of religion. The right has usurped the flag an the term christian…

    Could it be, Mr. Zaharia, that values and rows against Roe are used as distraction from more serious events?

    Religion has always been a power tool used to control people, every where. People are tossing away those vestiges of control and domination, and seeing the world as it truly is. Without the torture aspect of religion, it is becoming less and less useful to unify or dominate people. Abortion is a side effect of dominance, for the many conflicts experienced especially in advanced nations. Killing or destroying life seems far fetched until it is associated with a helpless creation that can not speak for or defend the right to life. People are sick. The World is sick and getting sicker. Either way it goes, it will not be pretty and no one will win in the end.

  • Felon Trump on May 17, 2022

    Voters in 2020 Presidential Election by Ethnicity:

    • White = Trump 57%: Biden 42%.

    • Black = Trump 12%: Biden 87%.

    • Latino = Trump 32%: Biden 66%.

    • Asian = Trump 31%: Biden 63%.

    • Other = Trump 40%: Biden 58%.

    White Americans are the only group were the Majority vote Republican and who wanted Trump as president (small p).

    All other ethnic groups voted solidly Democrat.

    It is the majority of white Republicans s who claim the 2020 US Presidential Election was fraudulent and who waged the insurrection.

    The threats to America’s democracy is coming from those white Republicans.

    This needs to be acknowledge in segments like this one if this clear and present danger to US democracy is to be tackled properly.

    Can the left and right co-exist? Not as long as people at both ends of the spectrum are gullible enough to believe the rampant lies pushed by anyone and everyone on the internet.

    There was always a degree of slant to "news" as it's been presented to people. However, when the only new outlets that were reaching large numbers of people were journalists, the news had to be concerned about consequences if they pushed news that was not verifiable. Now, anyone who wants to can post, stream or whatever anything they want to say and they're not going to get sued. You even have a large agency getting away with blatant lies by claiming the program they were aired on was "entertainment,. not news."

    The way to combat this trend would be for the people the lies are aimed at to practice critical thinking. However, as was pointed out by George Tomson, below, American schools are not teaching that skill for the most part. To make matters worse, politicians are enacting laws to prevent certain things from being taught, likely because the ideology they represent is concerned that a populace which can critically think is less likely to swallow their party line.

    Although this United States Supreme Court judge is now deceased, words from her book live on.

    From the book … My Own Words … author … RUTH BADER GINSBURG. Whether you are a Christian, or an Atheist … you better think hard and long, as you close one clinic after another … in the pretense that it protects “babies.” The lives of women are at stake here, and they are the lives of your mothers, daughters, aunts, friends … and even grandmothers. Then she made a point, nowhere addressed in the Breyer opinion, but embedded in the memories of women old enough to remember the days when abortion was illegal: “When a State severely limits access to safe and legal procedures, women in desperate circumstances may resort to unlicensed rogue practitioners, faute de mieux, at great risk to their health and safety.” (Later speaking with a reporter, she was blunt about the law’s purpose: “It seemed to me it was a sham to pretend this was about a woman’s health” rather than about making it harder to obtain an abortion.)

    Maybe we should follow the teaching of the Bible. Because we as people have become Animals. Look at the democrats and the socialist. As close to Animals I've ever seen human become.

    The left lies about the education of the people. Most people understand what education means if you believe that the left is more educated than the right then you haven't done your homework!

    America is more divided than ever before, except perhaps during the American Civil War.

  • Leo, Januszewski on May 20, 2022

    I am all for unlimited free abortions at all gestational stages for lefties. Just show your ACLU card or Democrat voter registration (or just wear a pussyhat) and jump in the stirrups for some of that free governmental "reproductive health care."

    It's already kept more than 60 million libs from existing and voting.

    Traditional conservative values, human trafficking, forced labor camps, torture, ancient superstitions.

  • Kellan Lee on May 20, 2022

    When comparing the level of polarization between the US and European countries, I’m incredibly surprised that Fareed did not think to compare political systems. In the US, there is a two party system, and those parties depend on their ability to polarize their voter bases. How many of those European countries are limited to two parties? Ignoring the obvious – that it’s America’s political parties that drive polarization – is poor research, and poor journalism.

  • Shirley Andrews on May 20, 2022

    It’s because the churches teach hate, intolerance & molest little children.

  • Shirley Andrews on May 20, 2022

    Sweden does have diversity BUT they don’t tell you about the foreign men following them home & scaring them on the streets & in their own neighborhoods.

    The divide in America is provoked by Liberals who scream follow the science, but then they turn around and say men can get pregnant and fetuses have have no rights. Liberals only follow science when it fits their cause. Moreover, they demand that America disarm as millions of criminals are released from prison.

    I am also a conservative because I do not believe the government should be able to take my earnings and give it to some schmuck who crossed the border illegally with his or her 14 brats who will not learn English nor respect American law.

    Finally, Liberals have caused this divide because Americans saw how uber-liberal teachers were teaching the kids during the Stalinist-like Covid lockdowns. The teacher unions let slip for all the world to see that they believe that parents have no right to opine in the education of their children. Americans also saw on a daily basis that there was one set of rules for the well connected and another for the rest of the nation: Pelosi demanding entry into a closed beauty salon or Newsom dining en masse with his pals and family while other Americans stayed home.

    Religion and government don't mix.

    First, with the Pew charts, Zakaria doesn't point out that America's left % is to the right of the other countries'' left %s, and America's right % is WAY to the right of the other countries' right %s. In other words, based on these charts, our spread (or polarization) is greater because the right in America is so far to the right. I'd like to see the same Pew charts from 20-30-40 years ago — has the spread changed much? Is the U.S. left % now closer to other countries' left %s, with the right static, or just what? Second, as to our "rapid secularization," I trust Inglehart's scholarship, but I'd like to see the charts, please, Fareed. ** Data aside, I agree with Zakaria's ultimate question. As a nation, we seem very stuck in a very bad, dysfunctional place. (And according to Tim Alberta's recent reporting, Evangelical Christians think the "left" wishes something or other (bad) upon them, when I suspect that few on the left wish them anything other than happiness in their own beliefs and wish they would not impose them on anyone else.

    On spot analysis from Fareed. Keep it up. We need this kind d of clear, evenhanded news and issue analysis! ❤🇺🇸

    Religion is exceeding!y dangerous because of its ability to get its hooks into people and manipulate them.

  • Risha Linda on May 27, 2022

    Religion is divisive and in U.S.A. religion has become evil.

  • Will Dwyer on June 4, 2022

    You cannot be pro-life without supporting gun control. Most abortions in this country are medically necessary.

  • Will Dwyer on June 4, 2022

    Religion is on the decline because people are waking up to the fact that religion is bullshit. I'm looking forward to finally being able to run for public office as an atheist. That time hasn't come yet.

  • Lavendersprig on June 8, 2022

    There is freedom of religion in the USA . You are free to join any religion . But , I don't think that people want someone else's religious views shoved into their face .

  • Sandra Lewis on June 14, 2022

    Studies have shown that fear is the driving force behind conservative views. If one's ancestors were progressive and liberal enough to cross an ocean for freedom why fear freedom and progress today? The entire world of humanity would be free of fear if they could give up the pretense of religion. The Abrahamic cults are barring us from creating a paradise on earth.
