Longing for Simple Debates

May 23, 2020  •  1 Comment

Is it Loopin or Lu-pine? How do you pronounce Lupine? For that matter, how does one pronounce Peony? Or Missouri? Or Tomato? Issues today result in a more stark, toxic divide I admit I am baffled why reasonable, smart, educated people support points of view other than mine. If we could rationally persuade the other to see the flaw in their loyalty, couldn't we come to some sort of agreement? But we have preferences, and prejudices. I want to believe that there are some things, values, commitments, truths upon which we can agree. And leave our disagreements to lupine, and peony, and tomato.

I can live with different interpretation of the same experiences. What concerns me is, in a sense, the Photo-shopping of shared experiences by certain interest so that the facts are altered to bring the experience into compliance with one's own view of how to counter the facts. Sorry if that makes no sense?
