any people i might call friends, do not want to talk about my philosophy or my religion. they have their own beliefs and values, and that is why they are my friends.
however, that means that person-to-person interaction has been reduced to my own thinking.
while my actual living environment is very peaceful and calm; most of those controversial ideas, conflicts and contentiousness, comes from watching the news or t.v. shows, and from interaction on yahoo answers.
in other words, no-one wants to hear what i have to say, and never have; this is why yahoo answers is such a gret website for me. i do not have to have a phd. just to offer my own 2-cent opinion. i am not under the illusion that anyone actually listens to it, though.
