Have you noticed the default in America?
“If I cannot change you, then …. ”
You are not listening;
You are not open to different views;
You are not willing to discuss ….
And the list goes on.
But, isn’t it more probably that if you cannot change me there are some other important factors?
First, traditional is not bad;
Second, your new point of view is not better than the old point of view;
And last, maybe I am just a stubborn old guy who doesn’t change his mind unless someone is NICE?
Do you think the modern dialogue will get better anytime soon?
