Fandango’s using some old questions so he can do the A to Z Challenge, an activity which I highly support. Here’s today’s question:
Is it possible anymore to disagree without being disagreeable?
Sure it is. Civility in discussions about controversial topics is up to the individuals having the discussion. If all parties involved agree not to hold one another’s differing opinions against them, and if they can agree that, if the discussion starts getting heated, they’ll postpone it until everyone has a chance to cool off, and if they agree that, if the subject can’t be talked about calmly without everyone getting angry and shouting and giving each other the finger and making insinuations about someone’s mother’s sex life, then the matter will be dropped and never brought up again, then yes, people can disagree agreeably.
That’s a lot of "ifs," isn’t it?
