A Dreher Divided Country

Overly wordy as Dreher almost always is, however some good links, and also some good thoughts if you can stand the length. 

We are going to remain a divided country. The election solved nothing. The idea, though, that if only we could have gotten rid of Donald Trump, then things would heal, was always an absurd fantasy. We are a divided country because we have lost the core narratives that bound us: a shared Christian faith (however attenuated), and a shared commitment to the historical narrative of America as an imperfect country that always strives to make life better for the next generation than the one that came before it.

The highlighted statement is a nice description, of the problem - I would add, "respect and reverence for a written Constitution and the separation of powers".
