Response to Bad Thoughts (Reply #13)

14. They are covered extensively in the media

But the only way to provide the "rest of the story" is this way.

As I have said in other places, I am not nearly so interested in the geopolitical nationalist based (Russia, Ukraine, US, EU) narritive. Those narratives are based on primarily military and economic advantage.

My posts are primarily to help people achieve empathy, because simplistic and incomplete coverage eliminates empathy and in the end can create catastrophies. People need to hear the "other side of the situation and history. DU should be a place where empathy is highly valued over narrative.
