when on the internet I feel as if its always about, here's my opinion, I'm right your wrong, end of story. what ever happened to discussion? what happened to the flow of ideas? I feel like the internet while inherintly a good thing leading more people to have a voice, was also a catch 22. I feel like more people tend to think what they or a select group of people think is right and everyone else is wrong and are not willing to discuss and even potentially change their minds. Now this probably isn't ALL due to the internet, and I'm sure in our past, people have always been like this, they just didn't have the major outlet like the internet to express themselves (seeing as how the paper etc etc would have been pretty expensive to express just an opinion... then again its still expensive now). it seems to be like "welcome to the internet, where everyone has an opinion, and no one cares to listen". Maybe thats just how our society has been this whole time and with the advent of the internet it just allowed it to be seen more easily?
what are your thoughts on this? I'm hoping to bring some good discussion with this question.
thank you all for taking the time in reading and answering my question, I hope you have a great day!

I completely agree with you.
A lot of people on here tend to be very set in their way of thinking.
I'm not asking to be agreed with.
But I'm asking for people to have the ability to see that it's okay to have opposing opinions. There's no need to curse or insult, but at least respect a view that is different from yours.
In every day life,
We cross paths with people that are from different backgrounds, cultures and beliefs.
How can be possibly say we are okay with every one if we cannot accept that yes, people do think differently. And that is okay!1
