Actually, it is a good place to discuss some basic issues. What ties all the things you mentioned together? It seems that the common factor is mind boggling disagreement of things that should not be a source of disagreement. Why are people not in agreement? A lack of foundational knowledge of long standing tested constitutional laws. Due process. Balanced rights of a stable society over against individual rights within a society. (In a free society, an individual is free unless his freedoms interfere with the freedoms of other individuals's freedoms) Compromising (negotiating) of positions that if worked through could satisfy all parties. My opinion is that a bit of study of constitutional history would lessen the disagreements and led to more agreement on good principles.
