The Great Debate

Today I want to back away from political views…and talk a little more about exchanging them.

I mean, if we didn’t all have different views, politics would not exist at all right?

But somehow, we have been convinced that discussing politics was a no-no. Not a place for polite company. Frankly, I think that is why we have reached the messy political point we are at today. Because of that attitude, most people are shy about discussing their opinions. In addition to that, when they do discuss them, they don’t know how to communicate a difference of opinion without attacking the other party, nor receive a different point without feeling attacked.

I think it is high time that we throw that idealism off and start sincerely having these discussions. Why throw the baby out with the bath water.
One can discuss anything in polite company, if one simply chooses to do so politely.

And that is our big challenge in the near term. If we are going to get over this national split… and work together to rebuild our great nation, then we are going to have to learn to be polite again.

And we have to do that. The world, and our nation especially are at a bit of a nexus.

We have big problems.

We have big potential.

And we have an abundance of both of those things.

We are going to have a lot of debates.

So lets get back in practice.

Lets talk about our differences, and lets do it without being dicks to each other.

Lets have the great debate so we can build a great society.
