Well, the video is just a sample of one of those debates that are more and more common... nothing but vent sessions and name calling. Why does it not
sink in that people are not taken as credible by anyone when they are flying off the handle in a rage protest. Honestly, credibility is kind of
removed by those that speak of left,right, or any other group of divide... it's tough to find folders of hate within me to want to care enough what
another person may be grouped as... I could care less what group beyond American citizen even I am.
I actually had a hidden intention behind the addition of this video that I must confess to. I had to remove myself from political debate here at ATS,
because each and every one of them reads exactly like the video in the OP. I felt that watching this video was the equivalent reading the political
threads at ATS & I felt compelled to share that. The cancerous words thrown around the political threads of site towards each other here are nothing
but a negative feed to energy, and people can't keep from coming unhinged in debate much anymore. ATS has been a comforting and safe expression of
thought for me over the years, but now the finger pointers have taken the forums hostage. People that enjoy debate run for the hills in political
threads, because people are smart enough to know to not even waste time in debate if it has to go backwards 10 times to establish who's thoughts
stands where. The ones that aren't avoiding the finger pointing aren't affected one bit... the debate started with the intent to insult before maybe
learn something, and they are publicly indicating that they are too emotional to think rationally when the unhinging occurs. So, the law of averages
puts the scene to where it's pointless to even open up and read the political OP's when it's already known where it is going to lead... unless one
wants to feel better about themselves.
All we have to do is remove the direct insults... I understand grouping and stereotyping is a normal part of debate, but to single debaters out and
providing instructions on an endorsement of divide immediately erases the chance of the debate to educate ANYONE. I can chalk a bit of the kick up in
these behaviors to the crumbling of MSM and the need for newer credible media sources (ATS), but the influx of hatred and finger pointing has erased a
bulk of the historical contributors input.
Nobody cares how much one knows when they know how much one cares.
