I was introduced to the concept of the Gray Zone by Waleed Aly in this video (opens in new window) - he was speaking about the area of cooperation/co-existence that keeps Muslim and non-Muslims from WWIII. 

It's clear to me that the tactics being used by the current Administration in the US are intended to eliminate the American grey zone (where right and left cooperate) and create two groups that will turn on each other.

It goes without saying - although I am saying it here - that this is unacceptable.
