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?

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.

"What has happened to polite discourse? "
Just listen to the ultra Fake News of Fox for a few minutes and you know what happened. I just had the misfortune of turning on this lying piece of s***t that somehow passes as News organization in USA, and in response to one mass shooting of American People after another they were saying the most amazing non-sense and Hate spewing toward people that are calling for sensible Gun laws that all other developed Nations have as a result of which they have had for example ZERO mass shooting in UK for 20 years where the Murdoch family behind this garbage lives or they have had ZERO mass shooting in Australia for 20 years where the Murdochs behind this garbage comes from.

There a are political ideologies that support and promote the use of division as a tool to obtain power therefore creating the polarized atmosphere we live now but which has existed for a decades. It seems to have been shifted into high gear in the last decade or so. One of our enemy back in the cold war era stated that they would defeat the United States from within (Khrushchev) and it seems they have not abandoned that plan. It is a shame that many of us are willing to play their game.

In that case (Khrushchev) has joined the rank of the Wall Street Billionaires whom have funded and are funding the right-wing Media in US from CNN to MSNBC to the ultra right-wing Media in US such as Fox, CNBC, etc. to spew Hate & Fear & War, which has killed and is killing polite discourse in USA, such as the filth and garbage that is pouring out of Fox and other ultra right-wing Media in US to oppose sensible Gun control which would prevent one Mass shooting of American People after another

which polite discourse they had in Australia, UK, etc. 20+ Years ago, as a result of which their conservative parties, repeat their conservative parties, passed strict Gun controls 20 Years ago and as a result they have had ZERO Mass shooting in 20 Years:

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-australia-35048251

Yet Fox, and other organs of Wall Street based ultra right-wing Media in US, call the strict Gun controls to be: "Socialism" "Communism", "even Nazism"

Reporter, you have said it well man. When are American People going to realize that the Cabal behind Fox is waging Info War on American People via this and other Hate spewing garbages masquerading as Media, which in fact are pure propaganda devices of this true Axis of Evil, to support everything that is bad and Evil such as state of Guns in USA while opposing all that is good such as Universal healthcare, and on it goes. When!

This is a symptom of a society moving away from God. If we embrace what God has said people are valued because they are created in the image of God, loved because God loves them and respected because God has a unique plan for them. When a culture turns its back on God it rejects personal responsibility before God. Then it progresses towards a self based culture. Evolutism is the lubricant because it teaches no absolute authority and man is just an advanced animal of the same worth as any other animal.

Not really. You can thank the right-wing Media in USA for having so damaged, if not killed, "polite discourse".
After all, for example the entire US Media from ABC to CNN to MSNBC to Fox, etc. spewed out the most Hate Mongering vile lies upon lies, to sell War after War, such as Iraq War that has killed 1-Million+ Iraqi Man & Women, 5,000+ US Soldiers, etc. catastrophe. So to sell these War after Wars, requires selling Mountain of Hate, by demonizing the Liberals who oppose these Wars, etc.

And they have not stopped there, they have lied and lied by saying the most hate filled non-sense you can imagine against the Government run Universal Socialized Healthcare (NHS) that you have in UK, by calling it:
"Socialism", "Communism" even "Nazism"
as a result of which 50-Mill+ Americans have NO Healthcare, 50,000+ are being KILLED per year due to NO Healthcare, etc. evil, all so that the Wall Street Billionaires can make more.
