Partisan hacks: They are a detriment to our society

Pew Research Poll

That chart from a Pew Research Poll about the recent NSA leaks shows that people often pivot based on partisanship rather than principle. I find it not only maddening to arriving at some semblance of the truth, but sickening as a detriment to doing that which is morally right.

This little nugget of information from that same poll also is quite bothersome with respect to those following the leaks:

“Among those ages 18-29, just 12% are following very closely, while 56% say they are not following closely at all.”

Why is this? Why is this issue being met with a shrug of the shoulders and a passing interest? It’s very troubling to me.
