I may not agree with your opinion but you should die defending it

Everyone says they support freedom of speech. Everybody is lying. Secretly we all wish everyone who thinks differently than we do would just die off already, or at least move to an island far away and never come back.

What makes you a good person is how much you suppress that instinct. If you can actually get through the day being tolerant of opposing worldviews then you have won.

The worst kind of person, however, is the one who does little to suppress these feelings and defends a stunted worldview. Two things make this the greatest offense: One – you’re not trying to stifle base animal urges. Two – you’re defending a stupid viewpoint. These people are usually the “Liberal vs Conservative” types we see so often cluttering up the Internet and talk shows with their outdated memes.

Don’t be this person.
