Bifurcated thinking is what splits the world--falsely--into limited camps and categories of purported good and evil.
From the article:
"Thomas Friedman argues that our planet is divided into areas of order and areas of disorder. Noting refugees pouring into Europe, he says “we have only two ways to halt this refugee flood, and we don’t want to choose either: build a wall and isolate these regions of disorder, or occupy them with boots on the ground, crush the bad guys and build a new order based on real citizenship, a vast project that would take two generations.”
Not withstanding the fact that Friedman is an unapologetic water-carrier for the military industrial complex and supporter of its legacy of warfare, the THIRD way is typically the one that transcends the paradigm of unrelenting deadlock. In other words, it's the path that flies over The Cuckoo's Nest:
"We do have a third choice that could minimize expanding the world of disorder: stop military interventions to overthrow bad regimes, and stop supporting domestic insurrections."
