One thought on “Tolerance, a Sign of Civilization

  1. Rima says:

    As you have mentioned, intolerance usually arises due to a lack of understanding between two parties or the one dimension approach. We have entered into this global environment unprepared and maybe even unaware of the cultural differences between us. From my understanding the definition of tolerance is enduring rather than accepting. Although tolerance is very important, I see it as a temporary solution to the problem. When faced with an opposite opinion, why not open our minds to new ideas rather than tolerate them? If we took more interest in our friends and colleagues' backgrounds we could have a profound understanding of the other's point of view which could result in mutual respect and a multidimensional way of thinking?
