Oh, if I could!

“It’s never a good idea to discuss religion or politics with people you don’t really know.” Agree or disagree?

I don’t like to discuss politics even with people I know. I’m so fed up with politicians, their lies and their corruption, that I can’t stand a conversation about them. I don’t like to argue. So I prefer to stay silent and avoid or change the subject when it pops up. It’s not easy, because, people, as soon as they know that I’m a journalist, begin to request my opinion about the political situation. Of course, they already have their own ideas, and the risk of an argument is high. I have to be careful. The best way is answer with some piece of bare information. The curious people will probably be disappointed, but maybe I could change the topic of the conversation to another more pleasant for me.

Polite Company.
