Why I Avoid Arguing about Politics or Religion

Each since I began the weblog, I promised myself to steer clear of political and non secular points as a result of they solely trigger arguments & onerous emotions they usually’re impossible-to-win battles. Discussing such delicate points solely sends out destructive vibes, which is why I’ve been specializing in tackling social points and critisizing ministers & MPs who usually are not doing their job correctly, no matter what social gathering they belong to and which God they pray to.

If a Telecom Minister just isn’t offering me with first rate web, I shouldn’t be complementing him and blaming earlier ministers as a result of we’re from the identical political social gathering. If a Well being Minister is doing a very good job however we don’t agree politically, I shouldn’t be bashing him whenever simply because I don’t like him.

The truth is, we’ve hit a brand new low on this nation the place we discover ourselves praising our representatives for doing their job, as in the event that they’re not supposed to take action and we’re all falling for it in a method or one other. Nonetheless, I feel it’s nonetheless higher than nagging and criticizing the entire time as we have to keep hopeful and hope for change even when it’s far-fetched.

Going again to the political and religious-fueled debates, I took half in a few (offline & on-line) heated debates previously weeks with supposedly educated and mature people, solely to learn how hate-filled and infantile they’re. I can perceive cussed partisans however the worst type of individuals for me are those that fake to battle corruption and fake to oppose the ruling political class however can’t assist however reward them, even when not directly, once they do one thing good, no matter which means. Add to that those that critisize spiritual figures or establishments whenever however are outraged when somebody they don’t agree with does so publicly, or worse can’t distinguish PR campaigns from actuality or wish to persuade you that there are good and dangerous extremists.

They’re all offended no matter you inform them, they usually refuse to confess their errors however as an alternative are inclined to curse at you or block you. They flip what may have been a pleasing and constructive dialog right into a nasty ego-driven interchange and you end up regretting the entire thing and questioning what occurred. Based mostly on earlier experiences, I’ve come to comprehend such disagreements are pointless as a result of they’re generally pushed by private and life-changing occasions, which isn’t one thing I’m serious about except they’re shut pals after all.

All in all, the half I like most in regards to the weblog is participating with the readers, making an attempt to achieve out to the biggest viewers and holding constructive conversations. I attempt to steer clear of politics and faith not as a result of I’m incapable of arguing about such subjects, however as a result of I’ve misplaced curiosity in each subjects in Lebanon and even after I do deal with them, I achieve this jokingly or debate with shut pals privately. I mentioned jokingly as a result of Lebanese politics are nearer to a board recreation than actual politics.

Due to this fact, as an alternative of losing your time in one in every of these pointless interchanges and short-sighted hate-filled individuals, concentrate on the larger picture and attempt to concentrate on constructive stuff. It’s onerous at first however it pays off on the long term. Additionally in case you have no alternative however to remain in Lebanon, it’s higher to take advantage of out of it in any other case you’ll find yourself b*tching and nagging on-line and offline until you permit.
