It’s not a lot to ask of people to be reasonable. That’s one of the biggest problems we have in society: a lack of reasonableness. A lack of willingness to hear each other out and not jump to conclusions.
Also, a lack of willingness to change one’s mind. Which sometimes requires swallowing our pride.
Our goal as individuals living and working together should be to get to the heart of a matter. To learn the truth, so we can live in peace and minimize unnecessary suffering.
It doesn’t matter who is right. What matters is what is best. We should be thankful when best practices are discovered, regardless of who discovers them. It’s to our collective benefit to give each other credit for our contributions to society and to the pursuit of truth.
