Last week I talked about thought provoking discussions. I think, now more than nearly any time in history, that it’s important to realize that our problems are not black and white. There are no easy and all-encompassing solutions, nor is one side of the argument definitively right and the other definitively wrong despite the yelling by radicals and politicians.
Only when we can acknowledge and understand other viewpoints have some validity can we work on accommodating them, or at least persuading them to something different through logic and reason instead of simply insisting on our own rightness against the wrongness of our opponents.
Black and white makes for excellent film, but even those films realized that the shadows and shades of grey are infinitely engaging.
