When you look at the comments section of hot topic news posts or videos, they are filled with folks trying to prove they are right and anyone with opposing views are wrong. There appears to be no civil discourse left in the world. Is there any hope or is society doomed to virtual virtue signalling about topics that they have no control over? The "I am always right syndrome" appears to affect the majority of people who take time out to comment online, are stopped by police, confronted when behaving badly, or when driving. Without the ability to reason and listen to others views, we are standing on a slippery slope with the ultimate end game of annihilation in our near future. Humans must learn to recognize when this pervasive personality trait is invading their lives and act quickly to change their way of thinking before it's too late. Just an observation.....
Yes, it is people Not listening or understanding But only trying to support their view at any cost. There seems to be no more hearing or reading to understand the larger picture but just to respond or denigrate the "other side" At any cost. It's simplistic and it's a shame that politics have reduced people to this sort of "otherism"
I truely applaud you for adding this comment. But man, were you brave to post it on a political forum.
