It's okay to change your mind. It is a good thing. It is important to sometimes be wrong. (When someone changes their mind why do some people that wanted that change to happen decide to attack?)
I was reading the tweet that Cher sent out about open borders. I then read Trump's response. I read a ton of comments on one of the posts about it on the Gateway Pundit.
In a brief moment of reading those comments a couple of questions came to my mind.
- Don't we want people to change their mind when they have new thoughts and encounter new information? Isn't what we are seeking that they simply learn to think for themselves rather than use herd/groupthink?
- Should we condemn and attack them when they do?
- Is that productive?
- Isn't ridicule one of the most popular tactics that is in the book Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky?
- Why would we stoop to using the techniques we find so atrocious upon people that begin to think for themselves?
- Shouldn't we be welcoming and encouraging them?
- Is it more important to say "I told you so?"
- Does that make us any better than those we want to think for themselves?
