The ancient Romans had a saying explaining the collapse of great nations: “Whom the gods wish to destroy they first make crazy.”

Hearing someone express a completely opposite belief - and you still like and respect them - shouldn't be an enlightening moment

Interesting statement. Please elaborate.

Well said!

Thank you. I have found that no column captures my final thought. In this case, further reading has thus far affirmed my concern with the consequences of dualistic thinking. For example, one writer on spirituality (quoted favorably by a theologian) views "dualistic thinking is the root of all evil." Perhaps an overstatement when compared to the love of money as the root of all evil, but still an honest sharing of concern. Thanks again for your time to read and comment.
