Well... can I just say Opposites Do ATTRACT and get away...
OF COURSE NOT... this is a discussion forum, so open your mouth and talk... blah blah follows... and I would die for a debate... so it might appear... huh?
Take 1: (this holds till I am convinced that I am wrong )
Let's start with the following things:
Opinions, defined and understood by me as a way of thought, have to be backed by solid beliefs, sound logic and definiteness towards that end. Each person is entitled to his or her opinion, thats where free thought comes to picture and maybe the weight of each opinion differs. All this is true... but, not because they match with mine. The weight comes from the basis and the logic behind the opinion. That is exactly why we change our opinions. First opinion is based on what one likes, but a second and a third and the final one comes after long debate with confilicting thoughts, and conflicting opinions. Ron's thinking may be based on the simple fact that it is difficult to change the first impression, but that's inertia in the mind, a common condition to have and sustain. Everything changes, but everybody at first opposes change, but later adapt... what does that show... we are willing to change after an after-thought affects the initial way of thought.
Black and white, they conflict yet are mated to each other. Right and wrong are similarly married too. Rose without a thorn is unimaginable, similarly the importance of life without death is null. so we need conflicting opinions to survive. and I think the opinions formed after a lot of deliberations is the one that finds most support, and not the one that's closest to what one feels.
So in conclusion, Majority wins, yes it does, not because most people think that way, but most people have had a chance to deliberate on the minority's opinion, give it a chance and then make a choice...
Trust me I am right! Even if I am not, you will have heard me out and then maybe either form a change of your own opinions or not, but not without thoughts yourself...
Ah! A discussion rules... always... but again too much kills... what says you... oops another topic, somebody wants to start this ?
THANKS FOR HEARING ME OUT...
some debate for keeping the debate alive, others debate to make their sounds sound stronger, and still others do it for the thrill, and few do it to clarify things, to solve their own deadlocked heads... I wonder which group I belong to...
