There's A Difference?

Evan points out that reasoned dialogue in today's world is lacking:

There are a lot of angry people out there waiting and hoping for something new to protest, slander, and joke about. Why, I asked myself, do people find it necessary to slam anything and everything that happens? Whether it is politics, movies, music, TV, or Internet, there will always be at least one person sneaking his way through the tall grass, and hiding in the deep recesses of the Internet ready to pounce on the issues.

While I agree that some things should be put down, everything does not need to be "flamed." The reason for this is that most people believe that by being angry and stating the other side of the issue, they become "deep."
Ah, the oft-desired 'depth.' Personally, I've noticed the truth of the following statement: "The most vehement arguments tend to come from those who are most ignorant of the issues." Is it possible to be 'deep,' and yet have little to no understanding of the topic at hand? Somehow I don't think so.

A webjournal of ideas, comments, and various other miscellany from a Texan university student (with occasional input from his family) living in Toronto, Ontario. Can you say "culture shock?"
