Truly Understanding it
We all hate being wrong but it often gives us room for growth. Recently, I’ve analyzed misconceptions I have had, and ones that many others have had in an attempt to identify at least one cause.

Political discussion was once a much smaller topic. Debated over water coolers at work and during ads of sports games, the topic was widely ignored by the vast public.

Hell, he knew so little that I had to explain who Republicans and Democrats were so he could finish a project in high school.
