Pushing your views on others is a popular addiction that simply does not work. People will only adopt new views when they truly want to with an open mind. Fighting against people who are different than you and like it that way will only lead to violence, anger, and hate. There are so many people in the world waving a flag that says “I know what’s best for the world” and contributing to the problem. Conflict creates more conflict. Now you might be saying, what about the terrible people who need to be stopped? What about terrorists? These kinds of people arise from intolerance and conflict just like this. If everyone could just accept that the world is diverse, interesting, and that everyone is different, then we could live in peace and respect each other. I’m not saying to roll over and let terrible things happen. I’m saying: don’t be part of the problem. Help make this world better.
