There was a problem reporting this.
You left out the very deliberate public division that has been nurtured for over 30 years. Pitting people against each other over religion, culture, race or political belief has been a big part of why we avoid those “third places” and that is not going to change as they are still very active in that dividing. Although I guess militias, protests and insurrections could pass for “third places” too.
