It sure would be nice to see bullies–especially rich ones–face consequences for their actions. There is such a crisis of accountability right now that many people appear to have accepted that certain members of society will never face justice.

That's something that society should never be on board with and we should normalize rooting bad behavior out. It's easier said than done, but it's one of many things that the majority of people would need to be on the same page about if society ever hopes to move forward.

There are many things we can do to make society a much better place for everyone. People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Cutelittlebunbun01 asked the online community,

"What is a thing that we should normalize?"

"Not having..."

"Not having an opinion about everything."

Social media has ruined this for everyone, hasn't it?

"I never find it awkward."

"Being silent when you have nothing to say. I never find it awkward, but I feel like some people do and they force themselves to make small talk. It's not necessary."

Business tip, use this to your advantage. People get uncomfortable with dead air, and will often fill it with things they were either holding back or did not intend to say.

"Doing 'social' things..."

"Doing "social" things on your own if you feel like it, like going to the movies or go out dancing."

Welcome to most of my youth and young adulthood. I still love getting out by myself.

"People only have so much energy..."

"Being OK with someone not being enthusiastic about your cause. People only have so much energy to put toward all the troubles in the world. Just because someone does not channel their energy toward your issues does not make them a bad person."

And just because they don’t show that enthusiasm online or to you doesn’t mean they’re not doing it!

"Changing your opinion..."

"Changing your opinion on a topic when someone shows you new information. It doesn’t mean you “lost” the argument, it means you’re wise enough to see the error of your ways and move on."

A growth mindset? You don't say!

"Helping..."

"Helping without expecting anything back."

I think we should add to this. How about helping without announcing it on social media?

"Men seeking..."

"Men seeking mental health care and not being mocked for it."

Caqumba

Access to mental healthcare needs to improve too. A lot of systems talk about 'parity of esteem' but only give it lip service.

"Men seeking help for being abused in relationships. It's horrifying to see my brother go through this and nobody believed him but me."

Sorry about your brother. It's good you were there for him!

"Asking how people are feeling with the intention to really listen."

_kionadreesmannx

This is a big one. It's so important. You'll keep a lot more friends around if you demonstrate you're a good listener.

"Having hard conversations..."

"Handling hard conversations instead of letting the problems fester and turn into bigger problems."

ResidentRepulsive

Communication is key and people who push back against it are not worth your time.

There are many things that we could add to this, don't you agree? The list is endless. Society isn't perfect, but we could always do more to better it little by little, day by day.

When Joe Biden was inaugurated on January 20, 2021, at the age of 78, he officially became the oldest President of the United States.

And even those who couldn't wait to get his predecessor out of office wondered if his age might be a problem.

While one currently must be at least 35 years old to run for president, there is currently no maximum age limit.

And though one certainly wants someone with both professional and life experience to be the leader of the free world, the truth is running a country is stressful, with physical and mental repercussions.

Indeed, Barack Obama and George W. Bush, two of the youngest elected Presidents, have often said, being President aged them, physically and mentally.

This begs the question, should there be a maximum age to run for President?

Redditor DrFetusRN was curious to hear what other members of the Reddit community thought about this, leading them to ask:

"Would limiting the age of the President to 65 be something you’d support? Why or why not?"

Democrats and Republicans are as different as day and night (or donkeys and elephants).

They have different views on big issues, from education to foreign affairs. Have you ever seen a political debate in which one candidate declares that they agree with the other? You'd be hard-pressed to!

However, there are certain things that Democrats and Republicans do agree on, from their views on voters to their views on their careers.

Curious about what those things may be, Redditor Reddit807 asked:

"What's something Democrats and Republicans 100% agree on?"
