I agree that our discussion in isolation can't bring about any earth-shattering change, but it is a step in the right direction. It could very well snowball into something much bigger than an online forum, if the right ideas are brought forth.

And is fear of retaliation a real reason not to try? If we don't make some effort to resolve conflicts, who will? Will they ever be resolved? Did all those intellectuals that I listed, and the hundreds of others who were persecuted, let their fear of retaliation stop them from innovating? Should we? Maybe, I don't know. Maybe the social climate isn't right for that kind of thing, but I still think that it's wrong not to try.

I'm glad that there's someone on this forum who is open-minded enough not to insult someone for disagreeing with them. Thanks for tolerating my opinion.
