Should tolerance be an individual decision or mandated by the State?


I take great pride in my intolerance of others, in my individuality and my freedom to think independent of government. My requirement for tolerance is to respect my beliefs, before you demand respect for yours. Respect me before you accuse me of disrespect. That the State demands tolerance and, in that, am I to lay aside my principles, my values and acquiesce to the beliefs of others?

    Sri---I think that we have some agreement, but from different perspectives. Any agreement is a good starting point.
