My father made a comment not to long ago that he beleives the US is more divided now than it was during the Vietnam war.

I was very young during the war, and have very few memories of it so I was wondering how those who were around during those times think of that.

Or for those who are tallented in history, how the divisions of today contrast with other divisive periods of the past.

Vietnam created a passionate & personal divide in the country, fueled mainly by the draft age young & the hippie movement.  But, I agree with your father,  I think the divide in the country is deeper now.  Social issues separate us , religion or lack of it, family values & personal responsibility. Opinions that are so  firmly held, the line between left & right is  difficult to cross.
