From The Good Men Project — January 3, 2011:
Not an easy topic, which is why it produced so many different points of view.
Perhaps the underlying message is that enlightenment is more about understanding the spectrum of opinions and belief sets that surround us than latching on to any single act of judgment. We have to learn from others if we want dialogue to be real and produce shared outcomes.
Any purely strident point of view is as unlikely to be changed as it is entirely correct.
