People who want to share their political views with you almost never want you to share yours with them. More often than not, they lives in an echo chamber where they only subscribe to social media news feed that reinforce their own political views, this endless loop further narrow their point of view with no alternative opinions on many political social issues.
For instant, liberal that are all for free speech, freedom of religion, equality and more will always try to shut down any conservative activities in University campuses via protest and blockage. Having said that, pro environmentalist will protest the construction of nuclear power plant but close a blind eye towards the radioactive waste generated during the manufacturing process of Solar Panels and Wind Turbines.
There are always two sides to a coin, politics is never black and white, there are always uncharted territories, different opinions that can be valid on both sides of the arguments. The minute a person shut himself out from the opinions from the other side, he or she is ignorant and dumb. Matured political views involves listening to both sides, respect the other person’s view and try to counter every points with facts, not by shouting racism, sexism, xenophobia, Islamophobia and etc.

Being taught to avoid talking about politics and religion has led to a lack of understanding of politics and religion. What we should have been taught was how to have a civil conversation about a difficult topic.
I learned that very often the most intolerant and narrow minded people are the ones who congratulate themselves on their tolerance and open mindedness. – Christopher Hitchens
A lie doesn’t become truth, wrong doesn’t become right, and evil doesn’t become good, just because it’s accepted by a majority.
