Delete If You Disagree

Posted By Brie Austin In Category: Opinion

I received an email forward the other day on the immigration issue. It went on and on about America; we have our OWN culture we don’t need yours, we have our OWN language we don’t need yours, etc, etc. Some of it hit on some points I do agree with, such as learning the national language when you live in another country — as I have.

However, what I found really odd was the last sentence of the email which said “If you agree pass this on, if you don’t delete it.”

Why are people so quick to stick to one point of view without open and honest dialogue. People on both sides seem to form their opinions based on the media headlines and then search for things to support their view — like similar minded rah rah cheerleaders — rather than review all the facts first, discuss it and then form an opinion.
