It is a challenge in our time to maintain a balance between dialogue and freedom of expression, so that different voices are allowed their right to expression. May those voices provoke thought and discussion, but not encourage blind hatred and violence. The problem is that on this planet we are so concerned with “who wins” a debate, a discussion, a fight, a war etc. Why not think less about “winning” and more about learning and sharing, which can result in consensus regarding solutions we can all live with for awhile?
But perhaps that is too « kindergarten » … ?
