Have you ever noticed that we humans tend to disregard ,with out a second thought, the thought and beliefs of those who have different ways of looking at things? Way is that? Is it not possible to learn something new from other world views?
I think it all comes down to the overwhelming and unhealthy need we have to be right. Why do we have this need? What good does it do? I don’t know for sure, but maybe it has something to do with connection between self-worth and beliefs. At some point we start to become linked to our belief system in a subconscious way so that if someone says something against our beliefs we feel as though they are saying something against us. We think that if our beliefs are not seen as valid, we are not seen valid. This mindset has a negative effect on the growing process of individuals and nations. It is not an easy task, to learn to think in a different way, but maybe we should try.
