I Enjoy a Good Argument

People often link the word ‘debate’ with the word ‘fight’. In order to avoid any kind of negative confrontation, some people will refuse to hear what anyone else has to say about the topic. My grandparents, for example, refuse to allow anyone in the family discuss controversial topics in order to “keep the peace”. While my family members do have many varying views on topics like politics, I firmly believe that if people don’t discuss and share their views or what facts they know then no one will progress. Calmly and respectfully have discussions with people about your differing views! You could teach them something, or they could even teach you.
