Let's suppose that we move past whether or not it was the right or wrong approach for him to present his opposition and concerns, and the fact that so many are divided on whether or not it was the right or wrong approach, and just what was the message of that approach was, and discuss whether or not there is any merit to the opposition and concerns that he has.
We seem to be caught up in hanging on to all of that when perhaps it's time to move beyond all of that and face head on the core of the topic regarding his concerns.
Do you think that there's any merit to his concerns, and that they are now worthy of honest and serious discussion?Advertisement

It's really about all sides listening to each other with the hopes of coming to common ground and understanding.
It's no doubt difficult when folks feel that they are at an impasse, and time and again we see that an impasse is often the case, yet to gain any ground for the betterment of all there's going to have to be grave attempts at compromise, mutual respect, maturity, objectivity, rationality, sensibility, diplomacy, and fairness.
Shutting it down out of paranoia that it's not gonna go all your way, or the assumption that it's only meant to be one sided is contributing exactly that to the efforts of understanding that has you having reservations about even trying to begin with.
No one ever said that it was going to be easy, or even perfect, but ignoring it isn't the solution either. We're really going to have to try.

In a country now where people protest people like Ben Shapiro and call him Nazi or write articles calling Tucker Carlson a white supremacist It's hard to have dialogue. We are at a point where just disagreeing with the left means your a racist , sexist or xenophobe .
