People are becoming too sensitive

Many people would argue that kids in the newer generation are too sensitive.

In recent years people have started to become very sensitive to everything and anything that people can say or do. Some good examples are politics and religion. 

People on opposing sides of politics get way too upset when someone with an opposing view shares their opinion. 

For example, if someone who is a Republican went online and said abortion should be banned, Democrats would try to attack that belief and that person instead of just letting it be. Social media is essentially just people arguing with other people over trivial or meaningless things.

Another problem with social media is “cancel culture,” which is the act of using someone’s words to take away their livelihood through pressure from the media and declines in whatever sales they do through boycotting of the brand they have.

And it gets even worse when religion gets involved. There are always going to be highly religious or nonreligious people who will get upset if you don’t follow their god or lack thereof. For some reason people think it matters who you pray to or if you pray at all. 

“Cancel culture is entirely pointless, along with most of the social media arguments,” said freshman Daniel Williams.

One of the only solutions to the current political and social craziness that is the world right now is to realize that words and opinions will never matter as much as actions. A functioning society does not need everyone to have the same beliefs and values. America was founded to be somewhere for free beliefs and opinions, not controlled views and forced beliefs.
