You do not just go uproot it and think that is the correct change and approach.
Would it interest you to know that I have read or listened to absolutely no reports on the current events? My opinions have been completely formed from reading each different perspective in this topic, and my initial thoughts on being made aware that this tragedy occurred.
Possibly making me the least media-influenced person in this thread. Because I haven't paid attention, simply put.
You don't have to uproot the foundations to.. trim the branches a little
Again, core values and morals don't change. But the specifics do. As Snowolf said.. Welcome to Democracy.
