Conversation or violence

If there’s a way forward in building a peaceful global civilization among 7 billion people, we must understand that ideas spread and persuasion works along a continuum of only two things: conversation and violence.

Each of us can choose to be accountable, improve our abilities to converse, debate, and disagree peacefully, so we don’t move the wrong way.

Two things to remember:

1)  Always contend with arguments, not people

2)  You have not been victimized because you heard something with which you disagree or find offensive.   Learn to separate your views and beliefs from you as a person (your ego).
