Nowhere else in the civilized world can you go and find the kinds of bizarre “debates” you do in America — over things for which there really is no debate. Should people wear masks? Does evolution exist? Should women not be objects and possessions? Are minorities human beings? Is it OK for a society to be a place of constant abuse, cruelty, aggression, and violence? Should people have no healthcare? How about kids — should we teach them superstition, not science, and then arm their teachers, in case a mass murderer shows up?
I’m sure you can find these debates in other places (besides America); but you’re right. It’s utterly ridiculous that in 2020 we are STILL having these conversations, like it’s 1920 or 1820 or 1720….these should not be the conversations!!!
