Sorry if I didn’t do yesterday’s quote. It’s because the day before, I had to do so much schoolwork, It felt like every cell in my body was completely drained and so after dinner, I immediately went to bed. Yesterday my family also had to go do some errands that took us quite some time to get done.

Very long indeed. A good editor could easily get rid of half of it.
One big part of all this recent craziness in 'Umerica is just plain, good ol' Racism.
A reaction to the first Black president. This is not to dismiss the political-economy aspect of the crisis, but to point out a concrete feature of it. There was practically no mention of this overarching factor.
On the historical side of it, the 1960's was a decade of profound developments in all the social movements in the US. Far from "a national nervous breakdown" it acted as a wake up to an array of different sub-cultures and sparked various communities of resistance.
Milton Viorst's "Fire in the streets: America in the 1960's" (despite all its limitations) is a good intro to the decade.

Coming back to the present the Race question and all its ramifications should be fully paid attention to; front and center.

Is there a link between a hyper-focus on individualism and inability to empathize or compromise with opposing viewpoints?

Based on the latest scientific research from "Giasabbad Cultural Institute" the real reason why Americans smile so much is the unacknowledged influence of Iranian culture and our proverbs, especially the one that says:

!بخند تا دنیا بهت بخنده

Unfortunately while Americans are practicing this ethos, somehow we Iranians have forgotten it, to a large extent. Though some study attribute the current lack of smiling in Iran to presence of mullahs in every single aspect of our lives.
Anyhow, take a look at the picture below and tell me how would you translate the caption.

This is a really important read. Schools and advocacy centers alike are using content such as this to explain consent.

We were so indoctrinated with "no means no" that it has been an uphill climb to explain "yes means yes". Here is Lacy Green on consent:

It may not be limited to Brits. This is the 21st century addiction that, as you have said it rightly, takes away from us many cherished moments of everyday life.
