I absolutely agree with you on this. This type of behavior is especially prevelant on social media. Typically, if someone doesn’t agree with something they are mocked, made fun of, and told they are stupid at some level. In all honesty, how people treat each other in a disgreement is much worse than that.

We all need to be willing to listen and understand the perspective and logic behind the other-side. One thing I have learned after starting New Politcs Nation in 2007 is that once we are willing to hear each other out, is when we begin to hear the commonality in our individual opinions.

In doing so, this is how we come up with solutions to the societal issues we face today. Listening to all sides of any given issue is the only way to truly understand it, and honor the respect we all deserve.

I agree with you in that this behavior will not continue. The selfishness will eventually come to an end because that’s who we are. Humans. Problem solvers.

I blame social media… 😂😂😂
