Before you argue with someone, ask yourself, is that person even mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of different perspectives? Because if not, there’s absolutely no point.

    Why would any mentally mature person enter a conversation with the intent of arguing.

    Says more about the mental maturity of the person to be a 5 year old to do such a thing.

    According to my therapist, the point is to Speak Your Truth, then walk away from the conversation if the other person persists. I recently had to speak my truth with a woman ignorantly complaining about rape victims because she was being offensive IN MY HOME.

    You must think everyone is correct and your are always wrong,g jonez.. There is no other way you’ve never argued with someone. A verbal disagreement is an argument. I’m arguing with you right now g jonez. Now that we’ve both shared a perspective on this issue, we can, like adults, argue our positron some more.

    True enough, though with the exception: there is the old role modelling obligation at gatherings when bigoted ranting person launches into their pet peeves. If others engage it and argue a bit intentionally, it is NOT actually FOR the set in their ways ranter. It is so the youth know there are alternate opinions. It is so the vulnerable know someone will come to their defence. (I fear I am guilty of not arguing intentionally for the sake of vulnerable 3rd parties, often enough)

    Nobody will ever see eye to eye on everything. Healthy discussion is good to get viewpoints from different perspectives, and if you cannot come to a resolution, one can agree to disagree.

    In the 1980s, President Ronald Reah=gan and House Speaker Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill did not agree on everything but could sit down together and have a beer afterward. Compare that to our present political situation, where acrimony reigns…
