I somehow found an email thread that seemed to be populated with Republicans, who wanted to blame and tear down President Biden for all the problems of this country and the world. Here was my response:
The problem with all these absolutist opinions is that people shouldn’t be so sure they have all the answers. My side (Democrats, pro-Biden) believes Trump should have been convicted after his impeachments. The other side (Republicans, pro-Trump) is convinced everything is Biden’s fault and he should be impeached.
As you can see, both sides live in different realities. My side gets most of its opinions from MSNBC, CNN, The NY Times and other “mainstream” news sources. The other side gets most of its opinions from Fox News and it’s TV imitators, talk radio, right-wing websites, etc. Thus we are left with two realities, two “truths.”
If we continue like this, our country will continue going downhill, and we will find it difficult to find solutions we can all agree with. I guess what I am trying to say is that we can’t be all sure we have all the answers. Somehow we have to find a way to come together to solve the multiple problems this country has.
