The Day after the Mueller Report, It is time to take a hard look at how we communicate with people.
Did something happen yesterday?
Social Media seems even less social today and that is hard to accomplish.
It is all very hard to understand to me, but it seems like the people who thought Bob Mueller was the salt of the earth Friday, now think whatever he concluded were not the conclusions they wanted and have moved on to other avenues to remove the President.
It also seems like the people who were bashing the hell out of Mueller for 2 years now are claiming that this "Hoax / Witch hunt" was actually a legitimate inquiry that somehow has merit in its conclusions.
Again, I will speak as a citizen who voted Libertarian and is no fan of either of these "parties" or whatever you want to call them these days.
I wonder what would happen in this country if, for one week, the people who are glued to Lawrence O'Donnell each night, watch Laura Ingraham instead and vice versa.
I wonder what would happen if the next time we want to "unfriend" someone because they support Trump or support Bernie Sanders, we choose instead to ask the current "friend" why they think what think?
I wonder what would happen if we could listen to each other voices in a live conversation about an issue instead of beating the shit out of each other on Twitter under aliases.
I am as guilty as anyone about making short cuts in my connections with people. But I am trying each day to pick up the phone and actually see people face to face as fellow humans.
Anyone can "fire and forget" their opinions on social media. I wonder what would happen if instead of going back and forth in comment sections, we asked the person on the opposite side if we could chat on the phone or meet for a coffee. Would we magically agree after that interaction? I doubt it. But could we at least understand WHY someone thinks the way they do and have a little more respect and understanding? I believe we could and when we are face to face with someone else, I think the best of us shines through.
