THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

If only people could consider viewpoints of others who come from diffrent backgrounds, suffered intensely personal experiences which have shaped their view but still retain the wisdom to glean and listen to opposing points of view without feeling the need to coerce or convince.More knowledge outside your personal wheelhouse can only expand your vision as a well rounded human being. Not agreeing doesnt have to dissolve into military bugles against anything said contrary to your own set of beliefs.
We live. We learn. But more importantly, we should always listen and consider.

I dont know you to consider you a friend but I consider you as an online compadre to share interests ideas and chat.
But i was referring to the threeway convo which I wasnt involved in.
Compadre is a good word

Generality. I like discussion. Even robust. Not sugesting this was anything but. Ive just seen too many worthwhile discussions denigrate when worthwhile exchanges could grow and be benefical to all.

What do you think contributes to denigration of discussions?

Blank refusal of an opposing viewpoint. Without extending the courtesty to ask another to expand on their point of view for a better comprehension. Whether you are in agreeance or not.
The noble art of respectful discussion.

Victorian Government are dumb. Once red zone is in effect, returning Victorians will be subject to 14 days of home quarantine. A sure way to get virus transmission starting again.

Compared to Queensland who will be placing them in hotel quarantine.
