I pulled this from something I recently posted on Facebook. I guess I think it’s important enough to say it again.
People go to great lengths to keep from admitting they’re wrong or admitting that someone they hate is correct. IT IS NOT JUST ONE POLITICAL PREFERENCE OR ANOTHER THAT DOES THIS. This is plain human nature and we do it in all sorts of environments, subjects and situations. It ain’t anything new. That being said it is true our current political discourse has a lot of people reaching for excuses not to concede the others point. Stop and ask yourself, why are you behaving this way.
Don’t bother providing answers or excuses for yourselves. Not here. Don’t waste this space on the internet trying to decipher and accuse others of their behavior. Just ask yourself that question, be honest with yourself and think about it. Think about why it is so very important to refuse accepting that you are wrong. Why is that so difficult for you?
