“Today’s discussions are no longer discussions but rather fueled up, hate-filled, vitriol-spilling diatribes and personal insults. The result? No minds are being changed but rather they remain stuck in the “echo chambers” of their already closely-held beliefs.

Is this any way to live?” – Bob Burg

It is time to stop speaking in an echo-chamber and put an end to Facebook fights.
