Seriously? The only person in this thread who has no response to the arguments presented and is resorting to diversion, is you. You don't even want to
talk about the issue or defend your position. Your continued presence in the discussion revolves entirely around the fact you feel insulted or that I
have insulted people who share your apathy. If you're after an apology you wont be getting one in this life or the next.
I will give my argument again, though I have done so now multiple times, in multiple wordings, with multiple examples.
Your issue here (along with various others, such as climate change, nuclear waste, water availability, overpopulation, survival of certain animal
species, etc.) is one which is relatively "abstract" to many people. The scope is so large, over space and time, that it takes some mental imagery and
construction of "what if" scenarios and potentials to understand the future impact.
Other issues people grapple with are more immediate in scope and reaction- their effects can be seen, heard, felt every day, and become more pressing
for individuals, as well as taking less internal focus.
If they must find a way to pay their bill this month or lose their house,
If their loved one struggles to stay alive in the hospital,
A child faces possible failure at school,
If they are fighting to get a job,
Or to find a mode of transport to get them to a job,
then your issue, and it's neccesary imaginative work just seem like a waste of time and energy that is needed elsewhere.
That is my explanation, to answer to your "bewilderment" and lack of understanding.
(Look again, I repeated it in each post!)
Then I suggested to you how to overcome that obstacle-
Do the work for them! Write out a concise and informative post, explaining exactly why and how this issue is pressing. Leave out insults and name
calling which will divert from your point. Leave out comments of their down to earth immediate concerns being invalid or not meaningful.
-If possible illustrate how these concerns may be effected by this particular issue, if that is true.
-If you have any sense, you will consider the possibility that those other crises of daily living have been provoked by the government for exactly
that reason, and include that in your argumentation
As I said the first time you and the other poster accused me of being "emotional" or taking those insults as directed at/for me- This issue does not
pertain to me too much, as I am out of the US, and really am very limited to usage of telephone and internet anyway.
I do not count myself as one of the "detractors" of this issue, and did not consider myself as included in the moron insults and such. I simply
pointed out to you that you are shooting yourself in the foot there.
I sometimes think it is too bad to see a worthy subject be presented so badly that it looks like it isn't, and makes even more people reject it. But
continue on with useless clash here, it seems that was your only real intent.
Maybe my words can inspire someone else a bit better at this kind of thing to start their own thread, which could have a chance at informing and
