It seems to work anyways since my well-rounded and reasonable approach to my beliefs is not inciting or polarizing enough to stir people on either side into a shitposting strawman frenzy, and so I remain overlooked. >tfw master of killing threads

>>25732441 >why do you feel the need to argue all the time I tell people it's quite simple: arguing opposing platform is a catalyst to engaging dialogue and insightful to alternative perspectives. One person saying "I like ________" and the responder saying "I agree" is not ever going to be an engaging dialogue. You're more likely to learn something about the other person when you engage in these clashes of wit and beliefs
Sometimes it's good to argue something you don't even believe in, for the purpose of enlightening yourself; though it may not be evident at the time, but as you proceed through the motions of a logical argument, and if you have a good form for debate, you will end up asking or positing and argument you had never considered from the position in which you actually believe. Sort of like as I briefed over in this post >>25732285
I hate having conversations of explicit agreement and proceeding self-congratulation and backpatting. It's an echo chamber that offers little opportunity for growth.
