Radicalizing is a serious problem. This info may be of help.
This has been brewing for decades and many historians, demographers, anthropologists and other social scientists have predicted the breakdown of politics as one of the first indicators of a frustrated populace. The country has long since surpassed it's carrying capacity and resources are getting scarce and more are doing without. The internet and pandemic has been the means and the catalyst for people to finally vent their anger. Unfortunately, the anger is misdirected and more anger and emotional hype will only make matters worse.
I try to look at the far right and left (never met a far lefty, but I'm in Texas and there is more chance of meeting a jack-a-lope), as cult members. With some patience and compassion they can be brought back. Not all, but most. Focus on the science and show them how to fact check it is very akin to how psychologists deprogram people. Right now the leader of the cult is discredited and the contradictions in the ideology are everywhere. Politely explain that injectable bleach won't fix covid and that storming the seat of government with a rebel flag to kill its officials may not be morally in the "right".
This is not a both sides issue to the point some on this site would like others to believe. It was far right infiltrating and performing destruction to make others believe that it was BLM or Antifa and the latter isn't even an organization! ONE side is the one attempting to destroy any ability of the other side to govern and has done so since McConnell got in the majority.
It's a false equivalency. So far people on the left who are radicalized, at most, end up destroying property, and only by a few of them. And that's assuming that it was not a case of right wingers posing as BLM or antifa. On the other hand, people on the right, end up killing people, such as the riot on Jan. 6. I have yet to hear of any people killed by BLM protesters, but sure as shit, one or more of the Jan. 6 rioters were involved in killing a cop and many of them were planning to kill Pence and Pelosi if they got hold of them. I care way more about murder than property destruction. People who care more about property than human life have, in my mind, a pretty fucked up sense of values. They tend to be the same people who value order over justice. Radicals on the left gave up violence, which consisted almost entirely of blowing up empty buildings, back in the early 1980s while right wing extremists have flourished since then and often been violent towards people. This endeth the lesson....
