The greatest civilizations were those whose people traded, conversing with people from far away, sharing foreign ideas, increasing knowledge/education, and inspiring new technologies.
But in today's society, there's a dividing, unwritten law to keep your opinions to yourself.
People need to stop guarding their feelings and pride so closely and be willing to listen.
Someone with radically different ideas from yours may not be as crazy as you think. And if they're trying to share their ideas, that's not the same thing as shoving them down your throat.
Everybody has the right to express what they believe to be absolutely true. In turn, they should listen to other's ideas in their journey to find the Truth.
Be a little opened minded, for your sake, and for the sake of the community and common good.
Yes, obnoxiously putting forth an idea is not the best way to go about it.
But just because an idea turns you off, doesn't mean it's not worth discussing level-headedly.
People need to stop being so sensitive.
You might think you already know every side of an opposing idea, thus refusing to hear any more.
But you could be wrong.
Listen, and maybe you'll hear something you've never heard before.
What was once called discussion or debate is now called "shoving opinions down each other's throat."
Doesn't anyone else find that sad and frustrating?
I'll not keep to myself what I know is True.
