I saw a political party calling the voters of the opposite party as stupid. That’s pretty dumb, considering they will need the very same “stupid” voters for a victory.
And herein lies the irony of most arguments.
They start with an intent of common ground, to share a common understanding, to convince by facts and figures of a truth they both agree upon.
But as the argument ensues, it quickly becomes a battle to speak, rather listen.
And we stop to realize that until we don’t have the two sides converge, there is no victory.
Telling someone they are wrong is never going to convince someone.
Telling someone they don’t see the point, is hypocritical.
Telling someone you will never understand, is you facing the mirror.
Winning an argument is possible only when both sides feel they have won.
