When you believe in something you’ll look hard for evidence to back it up. Politics is a natural game of bias, a perpetual rush to corroborate what is only a mere opinion.

Meanwhile, an open mind sticks to nothing but sidedness. A non-combative person chooses the middle to avoid strife but suffers from indecisiveness. People that hesitate dwell in anxiety.

Then there’s those people that just pick the best answer knowing that it’s in their best interest to choose and be proven wrong. There’s no such thing as a perfect choice, just decisions to keep moving forward.

But you always leave room for rebellion. When shit hits the fan, standing up for what’s right debunks bias, shields against the whisperers, and fights conformity. When you take a stand, the world sits still to listen.
