Dichotomy, as defined in vocabulary.com/dictionary is when you point out a clear distinction between two things, the contrast between them, such as war and peace, love and hate.

In today's world we can see the dichotomy playing out in the current situation of bringing a safer community (which would, I believe would be a peaceful place) but, we do this by actually perpetrating violence (example is:  one might feel safer and purchase a gun, while being allowed to conceal it or in a larger scale declaring war due to violence)? 

 

I am curious what others see, feel, hear that are today's dichotomy?


Today's most dangerous dichotomy would be the one between Republican Policys and Social Justice.

 

It not only created the mechanism for the Uberrich to redistribute all the increases in income from the middle class to the very top of the 1%, but caused the under-educated Republicans in the bottom 50% to think the redistribution came from Affirmative Action, Equal Rights, Globalization and Automation.

In this new era post Citizens United, I will add my other two cents,that is nothing in the current environment.

 

The dichotomy of the US political system that was orginally designed by the "forefathers" with it's, basically, two systems. How this system has progressed into the only politcal policies of either far right or far left.  No compromise of anything in between. But the irony (not sure if it the word I want) is the system was set up to go against a tyranny government rule, no?


Yes, the system was set up to stop a tyrant.  When the US political system was originally designed, they did not envision a two party system, that came later.
