..twitter conversation. I said I felt we normalised the dysfunction in political debate, I still have a sour taste from my plug in to the news cycle. Someone said we sometimes do that in real life to keep us healthy, within certain situations. He is right, we do that as people. To adapt to situations that are fundamentally abusive, we normalise quite some quite horrendous behaviour. Communities, workplaces, organisations, families, relationships, ideological groups, online communities, newspapers and political systems, financial institutions….

It is increasingly difficult to include the daily ebb and flow of political debate, into a thought process that is constructive, never mind a blog post. I think I might just avoid in future.
