Triggered into Archation

People get triggered easily when an issue affects a loved one. Drugs, health, sex, crime, etc., etc.

Principles get tossed.

Reason goes out the window.

That’s when, suddenly, “there oughta be a law” sneaks out of the closet where it had been buried years ago and gets treated as a reasonable response to the situation. As if archation is ever OK.

I’ve tried to avoid that trap in my own thinking, but I know it’s not easy, and I understand why some people can’t avoid it.

When I see it happening to someone else in a conversation I try my best to just walk away without a final shot. It would be pointless. No argument will cut through. Once triggered, most people are unreachable.
