Check to see if both sides of your  headset is operating properly.

Consider that you are listening to a recording of a symphony through headphones. 

To complete the transaction, both earpieces must be working properly.  I fear that too many listeners (discussants) have only one ear piece turned on or adjusted.

There is an evolutionary reason why we have two ears and that they are on opposite  sides of our brains. The stereo perception orients us three dimensionally in space (and time.)

We are barraged by enormous amount of sound, if not noise.

To appreciate audio-truth in the orchestra, and the cultural debate,  one must be listening with both ears. Neither the right ear nor the left ear can detect the rich mixture of signal and minimize the noise in the public debate.

    So you mean that right and left ears have nothing to do with politics? And that we need both ears to better understand the world?

    The more I think of what you wrote in this post, the more I find it trustworthy. In short, it makes sense.

    It may also explain why you are such a sensible person, KK.
