What has happened to polite discourse?

The ability to engage in conversation in a manner befitting intelligent human beings has seemingly disappeared over the course of a generation or two.

What happened to genuine interest in other people and their opinions and ideas?

There now appears to be a distain if not outright anger to the point of hostility towards anyone and everyone who does not drink the Kool-Aid and acquiesce to foolish rantings and demeaning behavior. At some point, this mode of non-constructive behavior must have become somehow acceptable and normalized by no one being able to teach correct mores of society to an apparently unteachable group of stiff-necked people.

Is this observation unfair or inaccurate? Am I being unkind in my remarks in pointing out the elephant in the room?

I guess I am looking for people who have set a much higher standard in the way they carry themselves than what I have been witnessing; and, they help keep others to just as high a standard by edifying and uplifting people so that they may reach their potential.
Is this a Trend and does it Appear to be Growing?

Well Said man. Well Said. They spent Billions of Dollars, really Trillions of Dollars, spewing Hate and Fear upon American People from all Media outlets they control: from ABC to CNN to MSNBC to the Mother of all Hate-Mongering machines that is Fox and the psychos on TalkRadio, the result of which has been War after War that USA is engaged in resulting in Death of Millions, from Vietnam to Iraq to Libya, etc. and then bastards having NO shame ask "What has happened to polite discourse"!

What happened is that Wall Street Billionaire evil Cabal such as Mercers, Petersons, Shartzmans, etc. spent 10s of Billions of Dollars creating the Hate spewing Media from Fox to TalkRadio to Hate spewing Web Sites, so that "We the People" would not get any value for our Taxes, so that they would instead control our lives and make US as misreable as possible from one mass shooting in Vegas to Parkland, to American People lacking most basic of social services such as Universal health that all developed Nations have including Israel which this Billionaire Cabal loves. That is what happened and still happening.

Wow, you know I was wondering the same thing. I had proposed a similiar question in reference to people being very self-centered and rude when people ask genuine legit questions in online forums and how some of the responses back are so rude. It really discourages others from even asking anything at all because they're made to feel so insignificant for even asking. Not sure if people are conditioned by social media in a bad way or is it mostly the home-training and upbringing or maybe it's just the person's personality period and nothings going to change that. Still trying to figure it out but I won't be wasting too much time on it as I'm busy trying to live day by day and help whenever I can for as long as I can

What happened is the right-wing psycho Media such as Fox destroyed it.
I mean just listen if you can for a few Hours before pulling your Hair out or Vomiting out of your Eye balls to the filth, lies and spin after spin that pours out of Wall Street based Media such as Fox, CNBC, slime bags on TalkRadio such as Rush, etc. etc., by opposing all the is good such as Universal healthcare that 100% of all developed Nations have to supporting all that is bad such as state of Guns in USA.
