Just about everyday I hear someone say something like “I wish those congressmen would compromise! Why can’t they just come together and agree?” We’ll this is a very good question, why not?
When you ask the people who say these thing, “What should be compromised?”, they will almost undoubtedly say the opposing party. Basically they are saying that they won’t give up their position but the opposition should. That’s compromise?
It is amazing to see how an entire society of people seem to be under the impression that they should get what they want simply because they want it regardless of others. A people that are so close minded that they think their way is the only reasonable approach. A people who won’t give an idea that comes from a different party a second glance because of its source.
These are people who are otherwise rational. Most of them are
intelligent competent. But they have this mind set so ingrained into their being that they can’t (or won’t) see past the walls of the tiny, closed, consuming void they are in.
Let me be clear; I’m not talking about liberal ideas. I’m talking about both extremes of political views and the people who follow them so closely that that they are blind to the other side.
The reason to me is unclear which makes me wonder, is it curable?
