Just as you feel that what you have to say is important, others feel the same way. You take a passive position, but none-the-less a position, which is precisely what others are doing. People feel that many of the topics here do affect their lives. The political, religious, Atheistic or social stances that people take are a reflection of their character and personality. The Ferguson shooting is a good example. For whatever reason people are ready to crucify this police officer and there is, as of this point, no evidence that he acted outside of the law. This shooting has and will have a great impact on this country.Religion has a great impact and, my embraced philosophy of Atheism is a contradiction to 1000;s of years of theistic practice and belief.
The advancement of a socialist or globalist agenda is a contradiction to what I feel is important, the US Constitution.
Much here is like talking into a fan, but occasionally valued conversations are had and I will learn something and maybe impart something.
A society cannot advance without disagreement and simply to agree to disagree is a naive understanding of the nature of humanity. At some point someone will begin to exploit that passivity and advance an ideology that encompasses everyone. Open ended tolerance is a good example of that passivity.
I like your thought and I wish that such could be the standard.
