Imagine if we were all the same. How totally boring. There are people on here I couldn't bear to be like and others (mostly) I find inordinantely interesting.
If we agreed all the time, we would all have the same clothes taste, the same job intersts, Hell we would probably all have the same occupation. We would all have the same Houses, furniture etc., drive the same car watch the same movies. There would be isolated pockkets of activity that none of us would enjoy, and packed out Events, we couldn't get near.
Its not stirring to be different or to disagree, it is ignorance to expect someone else to share your opinions, for after all that is all they are.
YOUR OPINIONS What do you think on the subject??????????????
I think you are on to something here. We are all different for exactly that reason.
If we weren't different we would not bother interacting with each other. So I think it is this difference that is keeping the world together in forms of relationships, family, friends etc.
I recently watched an episode of Oprah where they reported on the different attributes that are considered attractive in different countries and it was fascinating! Countries where a pale complexion is considered important,countries where a tan is top priority, places where you should be wafer thin, places where bigger is better, sometimes even the more times you have been divorced the more attractive you become!
Within all of these obviously there were brave souls swimming against the tide.
It really made me think, if there is so much diversity on just one subject, then maybe the world isn't doing quite so bad as we thought? Yes there are still wars but you know I think that as more and more people get access to the web the tide for peace will grow.
Hopefully also the tide to stop mistreating the planet.
While I'll admit to sometimes kind of thinking the world would make me happier if everyone thought the way I do , I also really do value the different opinions of others. Everyone walks in different shoes and forms opinions based on viewing life through different eyes. Some different opinions (formed by someone in very different shoes) may be something that help me understand someone/something else better. Even those "off-the-wall" opinions (like blanket statements about "all Americans" or "all women" or "all anybody") can be eye-opening as far as helping us see what we're dealing with in this world. Besides, for those of us who enjoy exercising our brains with a good debate, different opinions are necessary. Different opinions aside, I very much enjoy the fact that we're all different. In societies where the aim is to make sure everyone is "as much the same as possible" things aren't good.

I was just wondering, if you read a well written hub but it was something controversial that had a different opinion than you had, would you rate it thumbs down because of that or would you rate it on the hub itself ( written well, lots of information, good layout?)Just wondering because I write...

Do we really appreciate those with different opinions than ours?God made them too, and it's the right thing to do, but do we really?

I know you can have more than one account on HubPages. However in talking to someone recently, I realise I'm fuzzy about the rules. Can a staff member comment on the statements below please?I know that when you're posting in a forum thread, you MUST stick to using one...

I seldom use the forum because I frequently get treated with a condescending attitude or bashed no matter what I ask or say. For instance, the last time I used the forum, a long-time user decided to argue against my desire for hubscores to reflect the eligibility of hubs for the network sites by...

Ok. Yesterday, I received a very derogatory comment on one of my hubs. The reader pinpointed one comment, an alternative, that I mentioned, and disregarded the entire article. I did approve the comment, and made my own, should I have just deleted it?Here's the hub. Your suggestions...
