    i don't feel that i owe anyone respect, especially if they have none for me. it's a privilege, not a right.

    No, but there's a naive part of me that thinks I might be able to change their mind somehow. I'm probably wrong.
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....

    No.

    Why? Strange question. Why is it assumed that respect should be given in the first place?
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    One should respect other's freedom to voice their own opinions.

    One should not however, immediately respect those opinions, especially if they are fucking idiotic.

    That's the glorious part of free speech, you can say whatever you want, but others can too, so there is a nice balance.

    If someone were to say something offensive, they have the right to, but you also have the right to attack their opinions.

    The odds are high that this thread is a subtle dig at me.

    Anyway, I don't really care if someone disagrees with me about my ideology/views, as I am confident in them so it doesn't worry me what anyone else thinks.

    What upsets me is when people insult me personally. There's an important difference between harassment and political debate/freedom which I think should be legally recognised.

    I respect actions, not beliefs. Oskar Schindler was a member of the Nazi party but he did a great deal of good.
    Senator Rand Paul is alive because of modern medicine and because his attacker punches like a girl.

    This. I know it is rather common to respect until something is done to cause withdrawal or to trust until a person becomes untrustworthy but, I never understood it.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I do not owe their beliefs respect. There is, however, a naive part of me that thinks they might change some day, and I wonder if maybe I could play some part in that. I'm probably wrong on this, though.


    I also pity people like that.

    However, my ideals regarding this are sort of libertarian. I also don't always live up to my ideals in this regard. I think if you silence them, you make it look like they have a point. Arguing with them is fine, though.
