I know many people don’t share my views and that is okay. I don’t expect anyone to think like I think. I do hope to make people think whether they agree with me or not and that is really my only purpose. I know many people who have expressed views counter to mine and have expressed them rationally and thoughtfully and those views are every bit as valid as my own and they force me to walk through my own argument for why I think the way I do. I know seldom such debates will change minds, but if we are at least in part open-minded we can better understand each other on that sliver of ground where there is difference between people, because in almost every other regard people are the same.
