The title above comes from a lyric from an old song by Dave Mason called "We Just Disagree" (see embedded video below). The line before that is "There ain't no good guy, there ain't no bad guy."
This succinctly describes my feelings about so many stories in 2016, both political and otherwise.
Not every newsworthy story has to have a right answer, or a "good guy" and a "bad guy".
Sometimes, it is two bad "guys" or groups against each other, although no one really likes that idea, of course. This notion can often be difficult to accept, especially if you already consider yourself to be a member of one ofthose groups.
Other times, both sides are essentially good, but they have differing solutions. Sadly, that is also an unappealing idea for many of us, although it is a logical assertion.
This latter concept is frequently not tenable because most of us we want to have a team. We like to have a group of like-minded thinkers.
We want to root for something. Or against something. Or...something.
This team notion can be healthy in some instances, and it can also be exceptionally damaging if our initial areas of agreement with our group are misguided from the outset. In other words, if you start on the wrong trajectory, you probably won't end up in the right place.
P.S. On a related note (and as I have stated in the past), it really is okay not to express an opinion on everything you see in the news, I promise.
Then again, free speech is still important. Carry on. :)
