Current day politicians have become proficient in framing rhetoric and issues in such terms that opposing them creates an emotional backlash which is difficult to counter. The leaders of many of the world’s major countries are today unapologetically majoritarian: question them and you are questioning the sentiments of The People. In such a negatively emotionally charged environment reasoned debate is easily twisted to seem against the national interest or beliefs. This demonising of the alternative view point, if not checked, can ultimately destroy the spirit of democracy.
