Quick Question...

I wonder how many right-wingers who aren't part of the 1% and extremely wealthy and able, have traveled outside of our country and experienced the world. I KNOW some if not most of us would change our tune about healthcare, refugees, climate change, etc. if we lived in or experienced another part of the world for even a short amount of time.

It's enraging to me how many conservatives (my family included) think they know anything about the state of the world--about what's right, what should be done about a HUMAN struggle and plight--when they have never experienced anything other than their bubble of life in America meanwhile "learning" everything from the news. Does no one ask questions anymore?
If that's not ignorance, I'm not sure what is, and the sad thing is that we're all guilty of it.
