I have opinions, you have opinions, yet they are often not expressed and discussed in public. Why should this matter? Well I believe open public discussion is life’s sifter for the truth.We are too afraid to offend and/or be labeled causing a Stagnant pool of beliefs and ideas.True we have social media which conveys our thoughts but it is in person ,I believe ,we need more prose.Many important events occur and pass by which can and will effect our family’s, community’s and country with very little back and forth face to face discussion. I want to be fully informed and the best way to do that is going into a discussion with as much solid information as you can. Now hopefully the fearless counter point is there to bounce and shape ideas off of, which is in my experience ,fairly uncommon. I’m not calling for a pissing ,spitting or screaming match, simply drop the labeling, talk open and honestly,hear and contemplate the opposing view and form a rational opinion.The Daily Show,MSNBC, and Fox News should not be as close as we get to the truth of any issue.
