It seems that the pressure to be politically-correct has negatively affected peoples' ability to disagree and talk about differences in an open-minded and rational way. Nowadays it seems that you only hear from the extremists and at the first sign of disagreement people are quickly accused of being intollerant, haters, etc.

In part, it has. People are not getting enough physical contact with other human beings, and slowly have lost their tolerance to change, and have increased their arrogance, making it difficult to have a peaceful discussion about any subject. However, the fact that we are peacefully debating and discussing about this situation right now is an ironic contradictory piece of information towards the discussion topic.

Best Answer

had to laugh at the ironic contradiction... you're right :) Interesting point on the reduced person-to-person contact. I do think society's increasing mobility contributes to people being less deeply-rooted in their local communities and therefore more "independent" in both their thoughts and actions, which could certainly be a contributing factor. This could probably be a whole other [long] discussion.

I'd be more than happy to discuss it with you, but I have 200 pages of Charles Dickens to read by tomorrow, plus 50 math problems, plus some French. Message me and I'd be glad to discuss it with you. I love discussions.
