My dad decided he’d like a business after he retired from his career with the municipality. A Facebook page for the business that he wanted for his retirement years was one of the things he asked me to help him with. We had a supporter for quite some time, before she passed, Marilyn.
Marilyn helped me out quite a lot with tips on how to shape the page. In the area of politics, Marilyn’s perspective proved vastly useful. She expressed surprise that I would do something so amateurish as to make a political post on the page, which could cause arguments.
I realized that I should not do anything like tear people down with political rhetoric. I used the impetus to make an opportunity to learn more about politics, which was interesting as there can be a lot to criticize about political figures. In the first place, Marilyn showed me the problem: there was a lot to say about Trump.
It is now time to consider Trudeau’s problematic administration here in Canada. I don’t know yet all what I might do, considering especially that my dad, although he would not like me to publish this, does not support liberal politics. Even my younger brother, although he doesn’t claim to know all that much about the political scene in Canada, does not take a sharp tongue when politics are the subject of conversation.
Playing the role of an educator requires modesty and humility. With a content aggregator website and tried-and-true RSS feeds, I do some research and call myself a writer.
As part of yesterday’s podcast episode, Russell Brand interviewed a guest, BJ Dichter. He observed that if friends do become divided in a political argument, it is imperative they want to but ultimately agree not to let that end the friendship. Viewers were reminded that no matter what our political views are, we need to live in the same world.
