Folks, the deep, wide crack in this country's foundation may look to you, if you live in a flyover-country community in which manifestations of freedom-hatred tend to be mild, on the order of human-rights commissions, diversity councils and "green" initiatives and your contact with it tends to be limited to wince-, or perhaps occasionally growl-inducing, social-media posts, like something manageable that won't get in the way of your daily interactions with a variety of fellow citizens.
But do not underestimate the degree of their intolerance.

It's time to check in on your values and how dearly you hold them.
Inconsistency and relativism will put you in danger.
