Michael Reagan’s worldview lacks empathy (letter)

Rose Wentzell

I am responding to the Michael Reagan column calling anyone who doesn’t think like he does as dumb and dumber. So what is wrong with looking for reasons for problems such as Islamic extremism instead of shooting first and asking questions later. I think it’s forward thinking to try and help people who are living such a terrible life that they would risk it to be a part of something, anything. I don’t believe our president wants to put away all our military actions to find jobs for people who obviously need them, but it’s another way of approaching a problem and we need more thinking outside the box. For instance, I believe the war on drugs we fight putting users in jail and running around the world trying to abolish drugs does not work and we should spend our money on helping people find ways to live a good life that doesn’t want or need drugs, such as good job training, and good rehabilitation for all not just the rich. Just calling people dumb makes you sound dumber Michael Reagan.
