The art of civil discussion

We all have our biases and opinions. We all have a tendency to want to be right or win. But it’s primarily a civil discussion that I think most of us seek. Ironically, civil discussions are very difficult to achieve. So often, they degenerate into hostile arguments and personal attacks. I think all of us have to learn to see civil discussions as an art. To me, this means that we have to avoid painting with broad strokes and only black and white. Art is usually nuanced, delicate, and fueled by colors and shapes.
