HOW TO SURVIVE A THANKSGIVING POLITICAL DISCUSSION WITH YOUR RELATIVES - A YOUNG PERSON'S GUIDE

  1. Assume the worst about them
  2. Lament the fact that although 99% of your interactions are with people sharing the same views, you still live in a country where people that don't agree with you are allowed to roam free on the streets
  3. Flaunt your superior education as a signifier of moral high ground
  4. Don't listen to anything anyone else says
  5. Don't ask anyone illuminating questions about how their background or life experience has caused them to form beliefs
  6. Go online and use the internet to make fun of your relatives behind their back so your friends will know how cool you are
