If you think your worldview is right, why on earth wouldn’t you want to convince more people of it?

I get the point you’re trying to make, but “Right” is a really tricky word. And “Convince” is another troubling choice. Both of those smack of self-righteousness and typically just cause people to dig their heels in.

I think we all need to do more listening and less trying to shove our views down everyone else’s throats. Seems to me that’s a big reason why the world is in such a mess right now.

I am more than happy to share my views and my experiences and have a conversation. I’m not interested in widening the divide that already exists.
