What Happens When You Stop Listening?

When you stop listening to the opposite viewpoint, you end up:

  • Alone, or
  • With a group of people exactly like you.

Picture yourself in an army like the Nazis, or as part of a rebel force in Africa that rapes and pillages in pursuit of its goals, or sitting in a solitary confinement cell in prison.

That is why we must give every person a platform to speak – no matter how offensive. As soon as we shut that down, we further the problem.
