I just beg to differ that we shouldn't stay away from others, as you said, but instead learn to speak to each other with tolerance and respect.

That can't happen in same room. That is why we have different rooms and then one shared one.

That is where it belongs. But when someone wants to discuss of specific topics, it does not help someone come to talk from different. Instead telling that one to shut up, they can go public room and invite the others there.

Shouldn't be too difficult, as we are all educated people.

It is. Look like how many times equivalence has ruined discussions because someone wanted to be smarter and yet try to act as "polite".

But the premise for this is to accept that nobody holds The Truth, or, saying differently, that everybody's truth is The Truth.

It is question of point view.

Same subject, same time, different perspective. Why equivalence never works as claimed in real world.

Same thing is with opinions.

USA hold attitude that they can go anywhere and act like their way is valid and right. They see all from only their perspective. They want to invade countries, overthrow democratically chosen leaders and governments because they do not like the outcome those would do in other parts of the world, that USA has worked to control.

Why doesn't USA go behind their borders and stay there? No one would attack them. Who would if all their streets would be patrolled by military with tanks and hogs ready to blow whole neighborhood if someone is threatening others! No one would care what the heck they do in their own country. Just leave everyone else be.

Now, can you see what I did?

Instead writing that here, it could be better somewhere else, but as analogy, I think it makes it clear that even if you state just the historical facts and combine with some faith, it will rub someone wrong way, even when making a point.

But the logic is there, don't angst others, they don't you.

So every brand, format and system has own forums, don't go there to talk about others. And then there is common one, where better stay very polite and respectful, and avoid collision.

And then have the argument forum, where such posts can be directed/moved who so loves do so.

And there are humorous and sarcastic posts and you get easily disrespectful behavior and attitude that reflects its echo to communication and it is bad thing.
