This feels like the only fact that anyone has agreed on in like 5 years.

I had to look up major news items from the past few years to come up with other facts everyone might have agreed on and came up with: 2017 solar eclipse. I'm sure there's someone who said the eclipse was a hoax, but it was mostly not controversial.

That's all I have. Other news items like George H. W. Bush dying are probably well agreed to but will come with a lot of divisive baggage.

Not to rain on everyone's parade, but you don't have to get that deep into this to find the antiglobalists railing against the global warming denialists railing against the neocons railing against the monetarists.

The factions are there, they're just, like, first and second derivative factions.
