    We aren't obligated to tolerate dissenting views, but we certainly enrich our own understanding of the world by exposing ourselves to new views. I'm going to go ahead and say that if it was up to me alone, I would put up with every "view". I would not hold others to this standard though. Why don't we vote on it?

    Im ok with tolerating any view to a certain extent (although sometimes I have a hard time with Scientology,lol) but I am not, and will not ever be tolerant of any actions/views of any group that directly result in the harming of other individuals, except in cases where the harm is caused to keep individuals who are harmful to society from harming anyone else...and that is an even more complicated topic...

    By saying that the views discussed here are specifically the "negative" ones, the OP implies that there are also positive ones (and rightly so, of course), which aren't being discussed here.

People tend to always seems to draw lines as to say "okay this bit is acceptable and this bit is not". I believe these "drawn lines" have a name, its called "boundaries" & I truly believe one can't understand something if they are bounded, because they'll never get the full picture.

    I was simply viewing said subject of a different view point, one can not say an interpretation is wrong if them they themselves have only one view.

    Whether you agree with what I've said or not, would the your interpretation in which I can never say is wrong. Its all or nothing for me, or am I simply pulling on strings with no attachment?

    This is what I've been waiting for. Having a view/opinion/belief and what not is one thing but how about letting people act upon their views whatever it may be..?

    Come on in, kick off your boots, kick back, ... Uh Ohs!! -tripz- Watch the rug! This is a casual sharing of thoughts. Feel free to explore the uncommon if you want.

    "Tolerate"? To tolerate means to permit. We don't have the authority to give permission unless it deviates from the social contract called law.

    Any forms of intolerance are called discrimination if the individuals who differ, are abiding by the afore-mentioned social contract.

    Yeah, this is one way to look at tolerance; it's sad that not everyone follows the laws or pays the legal consequences for their actions (i.e., slipping through the cracks). I'm thinking more along the lines of businesses, universities, etc., following fairness laws in regards to your post.

    Also, I want to throw in a more personal angle into this discussion; an area in which we are protected by the Bill of Rights here in America where the government's power over us has it's limitations. It's not against the law for you to discriminate in your social circle of friends; specifically, you can choose not to tolerate a behavior, attitude, culture, etc and not call the person to hangout with you. You have the right to tactfully tell that friend you do not tolerate their views and don't want to associate with them; that's not against the law.

    I see how this topic could be looked at from many different angles; such as, we have a free will to choose what we tolerate or permit in the day-to-day interactions in our personal lives (for the most part), but corporations must follow strict fairness laws.
