Or – the Wrong Word

Have you noticed that people often feel that the opposite of someone they like or support is wrong or bad?  It’s a strange assumption.

And not just the obvious things like Politics & Religion.

Everyday things.

If they like Coke, Pepsi is bad.

If they are vegan, meat is wrong.

If they have children, then someone who chooses to be childless is wrong.

If they have trucks, small cars are bad.

There is this strange sort of OR mentality.  Like the world can only tolerate ONE and all other things must be bad.

But life doesn’t actually work like that.  Why do we do that?
