But a nation at war with itself finds its comrades-in-arms with blinders on, seeing only the side of the road those like them choose to toe.

The foxholes where they have planted themselves for this battle are dimly lit gutters, and their comrades tend to be the rats in three-corner hats that scamper through the flotsam of rotten, old ideas.
