I believe that the problem with people in the world today is that few too people are willing to have a common sense discussion with people of other opinions. Many people claim to be free thinkers but simply listen to what others have said and say that to the best of their ability. Take tumblr for example, if you posted "I like trump" you'd get a ton of hate mail. Not placing the blame on the left, just saying that too many people believe they have their own opinion when they don't. Afterwards they listen to other people to find out their own beliefs rather than actual research.
