Yes, Jane is very much speaking for me, here. I have very strong opinions on everything she mentions in panel 2. But, far too often, people simply aren’t interested in talking about issues. They merely want to know one simple thing:

“Do you agree with me?”

Most of the time, if the answer to that question is, “No,” then their interest in continuing the conversation is to prove to you just how wrong your opinion is. And forgive me, but I’m really not that interested in that sort of conversation.
