There’s hope though because we are all becoming more aware of one another.
For example: We all knew provincial thinking existed. But it wasn’t a concern because it kept to its own communities and wasn’t a problem unless there was crime.
Now provincial thinking is globalized and it turns out that provincial thinking isn’t provincial at all — they were simply isolated. Now they can band together as a force.
But, as you point out, it’s not an us/vs/them situation. As we are all exposed to similar narratives, in whole (full narrative acceptance such as QAnon or by contrast whatever us rational-thinkers-think (which also tends to have similar narratives to each other)) or in part (such as memes) and so much is weaponized as to taint clarity of thought, there is cross-influence that can get complicated.
