The act of fragmenting a unified community into factions, each faction declaring the other is *liberal* or *conservative* which are, in and of themselves, meaningless buzzwords (though have not allways been so) created and distributed by the media itself.

The same can, of course, be said for the other side, the likes of Michael Moore, and Al Frankin.
