Agree to Disagree

Agree to Disagree. I wonder if people really understand this concept. Social media especially Facebook make people bask in their feelings. What do I mean about that? When someone disagrees with a post or a comment on a Facebook profile all hell breaks loose. People have opposing opinions and start to insult each other on an opposing view. I have some many examples from bible texts, Black Hollywood, the 2016 election, dating and the list goes on. It is a shame that my age group cannot have a productive and logical exchange of different views. Logic is logic and emotion is emotion. When someone is presenting their different views try to see where the person is coming from and analyze their argument. With that state your argument and logically disagree. Insults and threats are not necessary. We need to learn to express ourselves with facts and reasoning and not how we feel. This is easier said then done but this is very important in a public sphere. Social media is basically entertainment and should not be a source of conflict.
