    I have noticed that, as a people, we are far less willing to make eye contact, even with people we know well. When I was a kid, I was told that it is imposable to hold eye contact when I lied. As I grew, I noticed an earnest desire to prove sincerity when involved in passionate debate to prove my point of view. Now, I see not only that a majority of people avoid eye contact but they tend to talk over each other. I have even recently had conversation when the other person said "I am going to talk over you because I want to make my point." It seems that the simultaneous reduction of trust and the increase in rudeness are connected. Thom, I like your writing, the way you carry a story and I hope you will continue to work at your craft.

    I bet there are plenty of lying, conniving people who know enough to maintain eye-contact to help sell the lie they're telling. I also once was told that "That's the way people have a discussion." She was referring to interrupting people in the middle of their making a point and talking over them. I'd argue that if you can't allow someone with whom you disagree to make their point, you must not have much confidence in your own opinion.
