Listening, learning, absorbing information, communicating, teaching, the thrill of better understanding.
Why’s that seem to mean nothing to some folks?
I keep wrestling with why communicating with right wing types always devolves into dismissals and juvenile sniping as we’ve seen here.
But when trying to communicate things I’ve learned, including the sources that I learned from, it’s consistently met with an onslaught of derision and distractions, misrepresentation, and kindergarden logic. So f’n depressing.
(so wish I had more time, but gotta run off and spend the day fixing funky old stuff, so Ill just leave this dangling.)
Anyone have any thoughts that might help in dissecting the mechanisms of denial?
