They just kept stirring up trouble between the different Rulers in India until the internal turmoil had weakened them to the point that England was able to take over India with much less loss of life.

    In this case, the Internet is the tool, and blaming and name-calling is the strategy. The Right and the Left have become so polarized by these pot-stirrers that our 'civil'ized Republic is in real danger. Compromise was built into our system and it has become an anathema.

We don't have to agree but we have to defend the right to differing ideas and allow everyone the dignity of hearing their perspectives with respect and civility. Freedom belongs to each of us.
