To comment? Or not to comment?

My 18 year old know-it-all cousin who knows nothing at all likes to post crap on Facebook about this and that in the world. It's funny, because she thinks she knows better when in reality her naivety explodes through her comments.

Anyway, I'm not really close with her, but I have a deep urge to comment on her latest post - "Who cares about a stupid royal baby. Let's worry about issues that really affect this world" (because the birth of a future king is of no importance, apparently). So I want to nicely comment and say "the hype is overrated, but politically it of importance because one day that baby will rule a country". Just in hopes of opening her narrow mind a bit. She's a smart girl she's just young, inexperienced, and was raised by very stubborn right-wing extremists.

Sorry so long. Should I comment?

  • IDK, I know a lot of older adults that still exhibit that kind of ignorance. Sometimes it's just best to ignore. At least it is for me.

  • Yes, I would. It's good for kids to get challenged on what they say as it, hopefully, can lead to an increase in critical thinking skills. As we all know, those are sorely lacking lately

  • Depends on how much effort it's worth to you. Most likely it won't do any good or change her mind. If you think there's hope for expanding her thinking, go for it. But don't hold your breath.

  • Well technically the royal child will not "Rule" as it is parliament which determines that. However the child may be head of the monarchy and thus select the Prime Minister whom leads parliament. However that doe snot give her license to act like a bitch about it.

  • I wouldn't bother commenting. It's funny that she would comment on the baby instead of just sticking to a statement about worrying about things that she considers important or relevant.

    For the record, I don't really care about the royal baby. I don't have a feeling on it one way or another. I mean, good for them and all, but it doesn't change my day. Then again, a lot of regionally relevant and important events haven't changed my days. It doesn't mean they are any less significant or relevant to those that live in those regions.

    And good gravy, WTF is wrong with being just a little happy for someone else's important day?  Is she an attention seeker?

  • You"ll go farther by being a good example to her.
