I hear what you’re saying yet I have to disagree that we only need one idea that everyone will adopt. I don’t think that’s possible. Look at us. Two, now three people discussing something in a comment on a post I made.
We’re all slightly agreeing and slightly disagreeing with each other.
The distinctions between ideologies is often very fine grained as much as there are vastly different ones. But the fine-grained distinctions can become amplified in lieu of large differences and the ideology wars will continue.
In each of the ideologies there’s generally one similar notion: “If only everybody would agree with us, the world would be better”.
I see that very outlook as an issue, a causal point.
I try to see alternatives to diplomacy and civility as answers but it’s hard for me to find any that seem to work better than that.
Yet, that’s my ideology. I’m doing the very same thing.
