Two tribes on the comment box

Been pondering the implications of the Big Sort again, as I travel around Northern Europe again

But it wasn't until I checked into the BBC news site this even from the lounge at Oslo that I realised we too have become just as polarized politically

I don't know about you but the kind of shouting and public schoolboy name-calling that goes for comment here (and in any space on the web that looks political), seems basely tribal in the way that the Big Sort describes the US to be.

Is this all there is to modern politics? Is this what all high profile blogs are to expect?

BTW reminded of the link between willingness to see conspiracies everywhere and insecurity I posted on recently, now where is that?
