Why it is not possible

to talk about hot button topics online
  • because we are too many
  • because you won't listen
  • because we want the answer
  • because there is no eye contact
  • because we have not agreed to this discussion
  • because one person is absent
  • because you don't know when to stop
  • I don't know when to stop
  • because there is no permission
  • because you cannot answer everything
  • because people are hurt and angry and frightened and
  • because people are confused and ignorant and tired and jaded
  • because hierarchies of agreement exist
  • because someone gets the last word
  • because we're a herd
  • because I cannot see your eyes
  • because no one asked permission
