Conversation Killers

You know, I've run across two posts in the last few days regarding pro-Iraq action people being conversationally ambushed by dishonest morons. One here, and one here.

Which brings me to my question: How is it that we as a society have become so self-centered that the only reason we ask a question is to vomit our own opinions all over their day? I say we, because I used to be guilty of this absolute rudeness on occasion, too, but I try really hard not to ask people what their opinions are unless I want to hear them. And engage in an actual, empathetic, intelligent, intellectually honest conversation.

Can't we all just get along???
