Dichotomous Thinking Rips Communities Apart

A Youtuber using the name "FlackerMan" put up an interesting video about foundational dichotomies in Mormonism.

The video was designed to draw people into the question of whether the "Book of Mormon" is true or false. Here it is:

Mormonism is not the first thought system to use dichotomies to gain power power.

People have used dichotomies to divide and conquering since antiquity.

When one comes across a really intense dichotomy, one needs to step back and look at the effects that the dichotomy has on society at large.

As a non-Mormon living in Utah, I simply see that Mormons have succeeded in creating an extremely mean and divisive society.
