Disagreement Not Disagreeable

One of the great concerns I have is the way in which public discourse has become so uncivil. The ability for people to enter into conversation about the ‘big issues’ of society without resorting to vitriol, animosity, and ad hominem attacks that are not about engaging with ideas but demeaning and, at times, demonising one’s opponent seems to be sadly lacking in contemporary society.

Accordingly, the article below, written by John L. Allen, Jr for Crux actually filled me with hope that all might not yet be lost.
