One of our biggest problems today is thinking I am right and you are wrong. In today's social media world people don't take the time to contemplate the other person's perspective. This requires us to ask questions and consider it from the other persons shoes, instead of judging them from our own. Today many people believe someone is wrong for simply disagreeing with their own perspective. Let’s take the boycott of In-N-Out Burger, because they dared donate to the Republican Party.
Republican ideals have been good for the nation and so have Democrat ideals. Almost 49% of people are on one side or the other. Independents like me sit in the other 2%. This means if half the nation is always wrong our progress is greatly diminished. We are either spiraling or walking eagles. If everyone has a perspective or reason to “see things the way they do”, then we should only be trying to see which idea or perspective is best at this moment based on the information given. Which wing do we choose in this moment to give more power to based on the facts. It doesn’t mean we should invalidate either wing.
John McCain funeral was based on a Love of Country founded on checks and balances. We have two political parties to balance our decision making, not allow it to become extreme. Same as dealing with people, once we make them wrong then there is no discussion, know opportunity for explanation or understanding. John McCain gave a rebuke to the kind of politics that even saw the Democrats push through a flawed Obamacare instead of debating the merits of a Public Option or Medicare for All. We owe each person the opportunity to demonstrate their reason, if we truly seek understanding.
