Apparently many do not know what the word means, so to whom it might concern:
noun, plural -ries.
stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one’s own.
the actions, beliefs, prejudices, etc., of a bigot.”
Bigotry is commonly and publicly flaunted by the very same who love to misuse the word.
If instead of preaching to the choir one would like to alleviate the significant, widespread, and dangerous build-up of pressure stemming from what amounts to decades of censorship and suppression then I’d recommend less talking, more thinking, and honest review of the problems as the opponents actually sees them rather than how one oneself thinks they’re nonexistent or easily generalized into denigrating trivializations of the opponents
Will such an actual debate happen? Doubt it, there seemed to be a chance of it for a short while but since then it has been mostly the same mistakes as before at twice the speed and double the force, that has to be a recipe for continued disaster doesn’t it?
Such a shame. We’ve all had at least three decades to avoid this and we’re still failing hard, we couldn’t do a worse job at it if we tried could we?
