Another Undercurrent

Another idea always in my mind while reading on the internet and bleeding over (heh) into here is that Personality Disorders have an outsize influence on the national discussion. Many of these are troubled and sad people who actively try not to cause others pain (but often can't help themselves), but others try to calm their inner conflicts by projecting them onto others.  If you can make your parents argue about you, you can ignore the arguments in your own head more easily.  So too with the internet, or any public forum. It is rewarding to start arguments among others because it gives you relief from yourself.
