Alternate Views

We all have different views on subjects.

Some of us agree with health care. Some don't.

Some of us agree with drilling in Alaska. Some don't.

Horse slaughter.

Elections.

How to resolve the national debt.

Abortion.

We all have opinions. Some of us agree. Some don't. Some of us aren't sure what to think.

Respect that. Be open-minded. Listen to everyone, weigh their opinions, and then counter them if you can. Don't argue for the sake of arguing. Debate for the sake of convincing the person that they should join your side.

Don't flame people because they don't share your opinion.

In this society, there is a pack mentality. If you're not with the majority, you're automatically wrong. When people don't agree, the minority often feels obligated to keep quiet. Because they're afraid of being attacked for their differing opinions.

There's nothing wrong with being different. We are not all a pack of zombies that have nothing else on our minds except brains. (Do zombies even have minds?) We're only human, not everyone is going to have the same opinion about something. And that's the way it should be.
