There's an age-old saying: don't talk about religion, or politics. But why not? I get it; talking about politics can be stressful. It causes conflict. And it's especially terrible if you don't know a lot about politics, or if you don't particularly care.
People who like to talk about politics tend to have strong convictions. Sure, that makes talking about the topic difficult. But that doesn't mean you should completely avoid the topic altogether; it's an important part of our society. So why shouldn't we talk about it?
Politics is always a touchy subject. It's the conversation topic that comes up at family dinners on Sunday evenings, always creeping up on you when you specifically don't want it to. It tends to turn into a heated conversation between sides, usually ending up with someone being bitter when they've "lost." And so that's why people tend to steer clear of the conversation - no one wants to argue over dinner, anyways.
Bringing up a topic such as this tends to be seen as taboo - while we all know someone who's very passionate about talking about politics, we never want to sit down with them and have a civil conversation. But the question is, why? Why don't we want to? What about politics makes us want to run and hide?
Maybe it comes from the fact that we don't want our world views threatened. We don't want to hear someone else shut us down, or even just try to. But if we're confident in our opinions, our outlooks - like so many of us claim to be - why do we even care?
But the problem with not talking about it is the fact that it becomes the elephant in the room. Politics is an important part of our society; it affects all of us, whether or not we really think it does. Discussing politics is important in broadening horizons, cementing opinions, and understanding the reasoning for others'. It's always good to know what's going on in the world; there are is always something happening that could very well change our lives.
