I saw this writer on the The Daily Show awhile back talking about how people cluster into like minded groups. Which I have to admit I'm totally guilty of. I'm noticing, now that I'm reading blogs by people near and far, that I don't like dealing with divergent opinions. I have to think, should I counter their opinion, and if so how strongly. I don't love arguing so it's not my nature to speak up when I can just as easily lurk.
How dangerous is that? I don't mean to say that we should all be confronting each other, I am a firm believer in tolerance. Still, I hate to think that I may reach a point, where no opinion, no matter how appalling could raise my response. I'll be looking for the happy medium, tolerance with kind objections.
Care to join me?
