"All that is required for this enlightenment is freedom; and particularly the least harmful of all that may be called freedom, namely, the freedom for man to make public use of his reason in all matters. But I hear people clamor on all sides: Don't argue! The officer says: Don't argue, drill! The tax collector: Don't argue, pay! The pastor: Don't argue, believe! - Here we have restrictions on freedom everywhere. Which restriction is hampering enlightenment, and which does not, or even promotes it? I answer: The public use of a man's reason must be free at all times, and this alone can bring enlightenment among men: while the private use of a man's reason may often be restricted rather narrowly without thereby unduly hampering the progress of enlightenment."
So, shutting out debate in the name of comfort, is essentially giving you the propensity to be simply controlled by those who have the strongest voice in your ideology, giving rise to dictatorship. Our friends, family and loved ones may have other ideas about politics and religion, but look at their hearts...beyond the simple words, pictures and words they happen to post on social media.
