If you listen to people like Dave Rubin who used to lean left until they discovered leaning right is far better, one thing is obvious to them: people on the right are nicer. I heard another story about a leftist lady who went to a Trump rally just to see why people support him, her friends worried about her safety. She had a great time and will be voting for Trump.
The left cares about the “collective”, the right believes in the “individual”. The clearest example is healthcare, the LEFT wants a 1 plan fits all system – the RIGHT thinks you can make decisions for yourself.

WGLT did this story a few days ago about a 21 year old who caught COVID and was shunned by her friends: https://www.wglt.org/post/social-stigma-added-symptom-covid-spreads-among-20-somethings#stream/0
Mary O’Brien: Get better friends, yours aren’t worth keeping!
It also shows something else about 20 somethings:
“I felt so alone, so hated for something I didn’t ask to be hated for,” O’Brien said. “It just happened. It wasn’t anybody’s fault. I probably walked past the wrong person at Aldi, you know?”
Later in the story:
Sound like protesting isn’t dangerous but going to church is?
If Mary had friends from the right she wouldn’t have been ostracized. They would have been available for her, friendships aren’t superficial.
One more thing you should know about Mary: She is the campaign manager for the Democrat candidate for Coroner Abbi Sorrells, the story doesn’t say if Abbi shunned her too.
