The bigger questions needs to be this: What are we all creating together? What is the tone of our discourse? Is it to win dogmatic arguments or find solutions?
We live in a culture that has been trained to argue. Sometimes so contentiously that we seek only to damage those we are in opposition to. But this method of discourse only prolongs our own isolation and pain. We have a responsibility to future generations. We must control the strong urge to speak from a place of anger and fear. Start forming bridges, not lobbing grenades. Lobbing grenades is easy. Forming bridges is hard.
Do the hard work.
