It’s interesting to note that there are many different points of view across the US. There was a book written about the US being comprised of ~11 different ‘nations’. Each of these ‘nations’ view central government intervention in daily life in different ways based on their background experiences and heritage. Some trust the Federal government and therefore have no problem depending more on it, while others do not trust the Federal government and want less of it. This trust/distrust bleeds over into political, social, economic and other policy decisions. I think we’re seeing that expressed in different ways and I can see the point each side is making.
Some folks can’t see going back to work. Because of the laws passed with an intention to assist, they actually get more money to stay home and collect unemployment. I can understand that.
Another side demands to be allowed to go back to work to provide for their livelihood. I can understand that, too.
Even another side says to keep our population safe we have to quarantine, social distance, and close the economy. I can understand that, too.
...and on and on.
What I can’t understand is how one group can insult another for expressing their view. I’ve seen on National TV mocking, name calling, from several sides, one attacking another that can’t understand or think like they think.
That’s why I say the truth lies somewhere in the middle. We’re not all wrong, and we’re not all right. We’re just different.
