Matured Debate, Dialogue, And Discussion

by Patrick Liew on September 20, 2014

This is the kind of debate I like to see in public space. Well substantiated, objective, and rational.

Focus on perspective not not on personality. The subject matter and not subject each other to any form of negativity.

As a member of the human race, we should not take things personally and call each other names. We should also not attack each other or seek all kinds of harm on each other.

We attack the sin but not the sinner, after all none of us is perfect. Our views are evolving and can be changed instantly.

When a presupposition or a point of view is put forth, we question the epistemological basis. For example, “How do you know it’s true?”

More importantly, “How do you know that you know is true?”

We should be careful that our discussion is based on evidence and not on assertion. And we take the trouble to verify the evidence and the rationale of our argument.

We will not partake in lies, half-truths, and misinformation.

We seek to achieve outcomes that are positive, rational, beneficial.

Let every debate starts and continues on the right path…
