Thinking Out Loud About Discussions

We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

Discussions.  Lately, people are talking about the time being right for discussion about gun control, discussion about race relations, discussion about police reform.

People have discussed these things for decades if not longer.   In my opinion, there are no resolutions because people do not go to the foundation of the issues.

The second amendment?  An argument can be made that when it was written, it was for the protection of this country against other countries because the U.S. did not have organized Armed Forces.  In that argument, it can also be said that guns then are not the guns that exist now.

Regarding race relations, there are many foundational problems including ignorance and prejudicial assumptions.  The experiences of minorities are generally diminished .   Once comparisons start, it is no longer a discussion but a competition of which is the better race.
