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!
