If I think their view on something is a load of crock, and I if I have reasons for thinking so, then I'm more than justified in correcting them, or telling them, or arguing with them over it.No, you should accept them. They put up with your close-minded-ness, so you should 'put-up' with their open-ness. Maybe you'll learn a thing or two.
Tell me, why in Sam Hill should I sacrifice my views and beliefs which I made and rationalized using logic and reasoning and accept as equal those views and beliefs of other people that I find to be incorrect? Nothing is stopping them from explaining their views, or debating, or disproving mine. Why should I refrain from pointing out where people are wrong just because they're too wishy-washy, stupid, or ignorant, to try to point out why I might be wrong, and resign themselves to just "put up" with what I'm saying?
Besides, if what you're saying is the case, then shouldn't you accept my close-mindness? After all, telling me I'm wrong for being close-minded is intolerant.
So often times it happens, that we live our lives in chains, and we never even know we had the key...
