Fact that people still believe the wage gap myth is real, "safe zones," and the fact that everything gets blown out of proportion

One of socieities biggest problems that troubles me is the lack of research people do and the knowledge they acquire.

Society's nearsighted bias towards any type of world issue is a big no-no.

I think a lot of people who get tatoos all over their body, dye their hair, and listen to trap music despite living in the suburbs are going to feel awkward when they reach senior age.

It's hard for people to understand what life is like in other parts of the world when they're so detached from it. It's easier for people like us who are used to interacting with people all over the world and seeing all kinds of perspectives, but for Dale Everyman who has a 9-5 desk job and comes home to teach his son how to play baseball, the $0.20 increase in gas prices is a bit more concerning than the kids getting shot up in Syria.

Americans have a bigger problem with this I think because we're so far away from any other major countries. In Europe you can meet people from multiple different countries and cultures just by going for a drive, but here I'd have to travel overseas or a couple thousand miles down to mexico. Personally I haven't traveled farther than one state over in the past 12 or so years.

I don't really know how to fix it though. It's easy to say globalization is better for the world, but Dale doesn't want his jobs being outsourced to India.

Incidents close to home, even if minor, will always be more important to people than something, even a massive tragedy that happens halfway across the world. It's simply how we prioritize things. I don't even think most people mean to be biased as such, either.

It is easy to say something is better when you're not the one that will lose your livelihood and possibly your life as the result of someone else's decision about what's best for you.

It's not even about being close or far from home. It's about influentiating your life directly or not. And some random people dying in some random place couldn't be more abstract to your everyday guy.
And in that sense globalization doesn't help even a bit on general. Atleast on major countries you get products and news from all kinds of places. But it still doesn't matter to the majority of people if kids are dying or earthquakes are happening or planes are crashing.
Just take a look at urban violence in general for an example. It's unacceptable, and that happens everywhere (which means it's going to affect everyone at some point) and it's a problem since always. But it just gets buried under other problems until it gets "you".

The democratic state cruxes on certain underlying pre-political normative suppositions which the state itself cannot guarantee. In the early days of democracy what knit people together was the institution of selfhood, which served to establish the aforementioned normative presuppositions say in the ethical mindset of the individual, then successful democratic deliberation could take place within the context of those normative presuppositions.
In our current troubled age, however, those normative presuppositions are now the subject of democratic deliberation rather than the object of it; democracy has given us the freedom to call into question its very own foundations, thus dis-integrating our own state.
The only solution is a proper clerical establishment, or, say, the continual evangelization of the populace to restore in them certain normative presuppositions, which only the church can do, acting as the conscience of the state.

My girlfriend and I switch off on who pays. I hate when people tell me I have to pay because I am a man. This isn't the 1940's anymore.

I've heard conflicting voices on these sorta issues. On one hand, you have girls on Reddit who recall the annoyance when their date kept bringing up how wealthy he was. Yet on the other, you've got older folk who'll bail on a marriage just for being not as well-off as when they started; or so I've heard.

Maybe it's a generational thing. I'll bet the Great Recession shook up a lot more cultural guidelines than we'd care to admit.

My girlfriend and I make the same amount so it isn't that big of a deal to us lol. And it is for sure a generational thing. My dad told me that I always had to pay when I first started dating my girlfriend, but that was 3 years ago and she hasn't broken up with me so I guess it doesn't matter.

For me, it's if you went out with the intention of not paying because you haven't got the money, you shouldn't of gone out. When someone pays for your meal it's like a gift, not an expectation

I'm exhausted by all of the hostility; hostility over anything and everything. I'm scared to give opinions, hell, even just talk due to the fear of backlash. It's so tiring...
