Dissecting an opinion

Abortion is a triggering word for most people. And so is religion, gun control, taxes, welfare, etc.

Humans are emotionally charged because of how opposing views threaten our way of life. But when we become curious about others’ views and when we are not threatened by them then a dialogue can begin.

Nonviolent leaders understand this. That you can still maintain your point of view and still be open and listen to why people think/believe the way they do.

We must first understand the charge behind the decisions people make.

Anger is therefore the dedication of our P.O.V.
