I am finding fewer and fewer people who desire any type of discourse. Perhaps sports, work, newest fads in various endeavors. The height of today typical dialogue is leaving a lot to be desired. We must all agree and think alike to be accepted by most people today.
We do not thrive on diversity of thought, but identity politics lumps us into either or. No middle, prehaps where the most magic of diverse thinking and dialogue occur.
Then again ask yourself honestly how many people can you have a deep conversation and be accepted for perhaps a different idea?
We wield the tool of Slander to freely today!
