Hi guys. I haven't posted in here in a while. I still come to Civfanatics, but mostly the Civ 5 section. Anyways, what do you guys think about discussing politics with family? It often leads to arguments in my case. How can you avoid them? Any tips? I hate how like every time politics is brought up there is an argument where people start yelling at each other and stuff. I was just watching the Green Zone movie with my dad and he started talking about the Iraq war, because the movie takes place in it. So I ended up saying I'm against the war, and there's a reason that most of the country is also. Also, there where no weapons of mass destruction, so we were lied to about that. He is a Fox News far right guy though. (If you remember me a while ago, I used to watch/read Fox News a lot, but now I use CNN mostly.) He thinks there where weapons of mass destruction, but they moved them out of the country to Syria. I told him the UN did weapon inspections not long before the war started and that the war was not authorized by the UN. He seems to think the war was authorized by the UN though. He ended up getting really mad at me and saying quote "I'm dumber than a box of rocks if I think there weren't weapons of mass destruction in Iraq." What can I do to show my dad my point of view, in a way that won't get everyone arguing and yelling at each other? For future reference the next time politics is brought up.
