You don’t HAVE to take a side on every controversy. Oftentimes, both sides are wrong. It’s OK to sit things out in these situations. Just because X is wrong doesn’t mean that not-X is right.
Just know that very powerful people orchestrate so many of these controversies not as contests between right and wrong, good and evil, freedom and tyranny, etc. Rather they are designed to pull emotional triggers, wreck friendships and relationships, destroy your mental, spiritual and even physical health, etc. These people don’t give a flying rip about YOU.
Do your own thinking! And you don’t always have to agree with me! (YAY!)
Exercising personal independence is good.
