Yesterday I posed a question on my Facebook page which came out of a discussion I was having with my best friend. The question was, "Is a more powerful federal government a good thing? Why or why not?"
As I type this there are over 100 responses in the thread. Only a few from me, the rest from friends who weighed in on both sides of the issue.
I was a little nervous at first. Would the thread blow up into some kind of flamefest, with people slinging mud all over the place? I made it clear that I wouldn't tolerate such posts and would take the whole thing down if people couldn't behave.
I am pleased to report that overall, with a couple of exceptions, the conversation has been well-mannered. The issues are actually being discussed rationally and calmly. And I am learning and enjoying the back and forth between people.
If only those in power could talk to each other like this, maybe something good could be accomplished...
