If this situation has never been a part of your life, you really should have no opinion. This kind of thing is where people shout from the rooftops,
"If it was ME, I'd..." and they are speaking out of their a**.
Anyone saying such a thing is totally and unequivocally GUESSING, what they would do, yet, remarkably, they KNOW what others should be doing without
hesitation. Talk about detachment from reality.
The only people who should have any opinion, and therefor any input on policy, are people who have had to deal with such an issue, because "pretend"
connection is gibberish not worth listening to. And before people shout, "wait, i have a right to my belief..." consider that it is not a belief
based on actual experience, but a belief based on speculation. Please define what a belief based on speculation is. Define what a belief based on
Oddly enough, those same people who are sure their speculative belief is fact, don't usually have any firm beliefs on how nuclear reactors really
should work, or how open heart surgery should be altered, or how cars can easily improve mileage - things they know nothing about either. It takes a
truly evolved person to say, "gee, I don't have any experience with that so I can't comment."
People who deal with this daily, for a living, and those who have experienced it, first hand, have a deep understanding based on actual tangible,
measurable experience and there is simply no substitute for it. Yet, I am astounded how people who have no experience with much of anything at all are
experts in everything and are seemingly in charge of policy. We have a local politician who has been in office for some 30 years, he's never had a
real job of any kind, yet he's an expert in how to run a business.
