It is easier for us all to hang around people we know or like. It is easier for us all to consider someone who holds a different point of view as an idiot – after all, we like to think that our opinions are right and we are the smarter ones. But it is necessary for each of us to inquire into others’ perspective. If others’ perspectives are so idiotic, why would there be people holding those views? “Because they are stupid or evil” is not a valid answer. Would those people think that you are stupid and evil as well? There is a lack of understanding between people from different points of views, cultures or ideologies. If only we all can engage in a thoughtful conversation, how many arguments would be resolved peacefully?
