I made this point in Trump's Reckoning:
"In case you have been living under a rock for the past half century, our country is slowly sliding into another Civil War. But this time it isn't being fought with muskets and swords. This time it is being fought with electronic media weapons of mass dissemination. The information age is experiencing growing pains and it has become difficult to distinguish truth from fiction, lies from deception and right from wrong.
...I would argue that Donald Trump won the Presidency precisely because so many Americans are concerned that the nature of our Union is under assault. Voters were looking for a Lincoln figure to heal our wounds, even if he prescribes some painful medicine to do it. And in many ways Trump is the modern day Lincoln. Not a conventional politician, Lincoln came to politics to interject some sanity to the process. Trump has said that his motives are just as patriotic and pragmatic.
...Trump has been steadfast in confronting political correctness, which is in it's own way a form of servitude. American's sensed this when they went to the polls for him, as he was the only candidate willing to tackle the massive cabal of group thinking media elitists. Political correctness has devolved our schools, our entertainment, our social discourse, our sense of security and the relations we have with each other. Less tangible issues than those of states sovereignty, but just as divisive...
The point is, our nuclear family, America's social glue, is being turned into quicksand for political expediency. And political correctness was the vehicle that allowed it to happen, and only Donald Trump had the issues of media misinformation and political correctness in the crosshairs of his campaign speeches."
