Why do I still get into political discussions? First of all, I don't know as much as some of the people I talk to. Second, I feel that those who want power will continue to excercise the means they feel are necessary, whether we like it or not. Third, when we engage in discourse we lose focus on the individual and lump people into categories in which they may not belong. Misunderstanding abounds. Fourth, I have to consider: How does political discourse fall into the Five Wise Dimensions?
