Think for yourself and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too. (Voltaire, pen name for François-Marie Arouet, 18th century French writer and philosopher)
It’s strange, isn’t it, that in a culture where individual independence is so highly valued, so much intolerance is often shown to those who offer an opinion that is contrary to the current “political correctness”? We should value our highly-thought out opinions and guard them with care, but we must learn to give others of differing opinions the same privilege.
Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions (Proverbs 18:2).
