certaina thingsa thata maya bea seriousa ora nota soa seriesa buta givinga ita somea thoughta froma alla angelsa
beforea handa toa nota offenda ora jumpa toa conclusions.
Criticala thinkinga anda Politicsa ora beinga aa consumera goesa handa ina handa ina mya opinion.a Politicsa
cana bea aa touchya subjecta anda Ia feela wea shoulda alwaysa thinka criticallya beforea indulginga ina sucha
conversationsa ora ona sociala mediaa becausea everya onesa politicala views,a ina mya opiniona area
privatea anda alsoa thea personsa opiniona buta peoplea willa anda doa geta offendeda anda cana lasha outa ata
othersa fora simplya havinga ana opinion.a Ia alsoa think,a peoplea shoulda nota forcea theira viewsa ona
politicsa ora ona productsa ona othersa ifa nota wanted.

But,a mosta importantlya Ia willa knowa howa toa communicatea mya argumentsa effectivelya withouta
offendinga anyonea ora speakinga incorrectly.a Whena ita comesa toa bea aa consumer,a Ia nowa
understanda aa littlea morea abouta whya thingsa happena anda howa toa communicatea ifa Ia ama unhappy.a
Ia feela likea learninga abouta thea fallaciesa alsoa helpeda mea becomea aa bettera consumera becausea

shoulda usea criticala thinking.a Ina ordera toa encouragea othersa withouta offendinga anyonea Ia maya
saya thinksa likea “thinka abouta thea othera pointa ofa view”a ora “thinka deeper”.a Ia feela likea thena Ia
