    I do enjoy the way you have framed this specific concern and it does indeed provide me personally a lot of fodder for thought. However, because of what I have observed, I only hope as other opinions pack on that people continue to be on point and in no way start on a soap box involving some other news of the day. All the same, thank you for this excellent point and while I can not necessarily go along with this in totality, I regard the perspective.
