Miscellaneous Musing #83

The next time that someone says something with which you disagree, don’t leap to the ideological attack, but instead ask the person to explain his viewpoint.  Unless you possess infallibility of judgment, it might turn out that it’s he who is right and you are wrong; even if his words fail to persuade you, he’ll probably have legitimate reasons for thinking as he does, the revelation which ought to teach you to be more tolerant of opinions that differ from yours.
