The death threats and hate mail I received after my recent appearance on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews is yet another example of American’s emotional immaturity and inability to discuss important social issues like gun control through logic-based critical thinking. How can we solve these major issues when we are responding with emotionally-charged thinking to new ideas? Many of the emails I received read like they were written by children, with excessive use of the “F-word’ being the norm. Until America grows up emotionally and begins to approach major issues like critical thinking adults we will continue our downward slide. Watch this short video I taped on Palm Beach, and if interested, watch my Chris Matthews show interview and see what you think. Whether you agree with my position on gun control or not is irrelevant. The point is to start a critical thinking conversation between educated adults capable of carefully considering all ideas with the collective goal of reaching a problem solving solution.
