Too many adults today act like children when they are confronted with any real substantive thought process.
Oh, if it is just an opinion about their favorite food or who should win American Idol, they can talk and talk because it is their opinion about their own preference. They can't be "wrong." How could I tell you that you don't like the color you say you do? Personal preferences cannot be debated -- and most people today treat politics like that.
But if we are going to debate a topic of what is right or wrong, what is objectively true or not, then many people are emotionally incapable of having a discussion. My family has people who I have never had a substantive discussion with because they end it within a few seconds. They can't deal.
