It seems that the “political divide” is getting deeper in many parts of the world. It seems that political gridlock is intensifying in the U.S. Whenever I listen to the podcast, I hear quite a few comments about the “negative” ads around the presidential election.
It seems that the Super Bowl ad has been somewhat affected by this “negative” tone. I have heard about the Chrysler ad featuring Clint Eastwood causing some discussion. As I understand it, some people seem to read into the wording and perceive it as something political. I do not quite understand why it has gone so far.
I recall the conversation I had several weeks ago in which I heard politicians from the U.S. were arguing over so hard at dinner. The person from whom I heard this story seems to have been fed up with the never-ending conflict and argument.
The US is not the only country where there seems to be continuing debate and never-ending discussion without some type of agreement and plan of action. I realize that the issues and problems today are very complex and inter-related, making the solutions difficult to come by, not to mention to implement in a timely manner. But we need to shift our course to take some positive and constructive argument to get something done. With a step forward, we can make it.
