I'm wondering why people often argue the wrong things. Is it to derail an idea based on their own agenda? Is it to serve their own ego, thinking if
they can get people to agree with them within a post, they get more credit, somehow discrediting the OP?
I'll give you a few examples of what I mean:
" Huge corporations are draining us dry "
" Don't pick on businesses! Small businesses have it bad enough "
Okay, what the heck? These are two different topics entirely. Let's debate/figure out what should be done about the tyrannical fortune 100
companies/banks and also figure out how to stimulate small business, rather than derailing any ideas that, if implemented, would be beneficial.
What's the point of debate, if not to seek out positive solutions to problems/implement said solutions?
" I do/don't believe in God, here's why "
" Did you know religion/godlessness has caused the most wars, that religion/lack causes the most problems?"
Seriously? I have not seen many reasonable debates on this topic, I don't know why each side tries to shove things down the others throat, but why
can't we have a discussion and come up with ideas, revolutionize rather than conform, be our own people rather than being a stereotype for one side
or the other. I really think a lot can be learned from people of all religions and beliefs, because with that comes different
morals/standards/cultures/ideas. Diversification can be a very positive thing, if people let it. I can learn something from you, and you, me.
" The world is bad right now, what can we do to fix it? "
" It's Bush's fault! " -Or, insert a random event/person/idea that really makes people mad.
This is huge, and why I think our nation just continues to fall. Banks/Corporations/Government are screwing us over in every way possible, stealing
from the poor, giving to the rich, stripping us of rights, even the ones we call " Inalienable " even rights given to us in the Constitution of our
land. All the while, we're distracted, apathetic, ignorant, stubborn. We argue about things that are quite small compared to the things that are
taken away from us.
Anyways, I just needed a rant, I don't suppose too many will read this, and I realize that typing out this stuff rather than taking actual action
will have any impact, but it's late, and I needed to get some stuff off my mind.
