1073 – Seeking Asylum

Julie: The government is out to get me. I feel like I don’t have any real freedom and everything I do is being monitored.

Ed: Maybe you should move to another country.

Julie: I guess that’s one solution.

Ed: Yes, you should seek asylum in another country.

Julie: Become a refugee? I’m not sure I want to do that.

Ed: Well, if you feel like you’re being persecuted, you should look for other options.

Julie: That seems a little extreme.

Ed: People who are being treated unfairly because of their political opinions or religious beliefs have the option to emigrate.

Julie: I’m not sure I’d go that far.

Ed: I urge you to think about it. Other countries have resettlement programs for refugees and not every country will have reached their quota yet this year. You might still find a country that will take you.

Julie: I didn’t say that I wanted to renounce my citizenship. I was just letting off steam.

Ed: That’s the problem with you young people these days. You have no follow-through, and no courage of your convictions. You all need to man up!
