I'll begin today's blog by talking about Pokemon. Yes, those cute and lovable creatures have relevancy to Planet Bob. This quote was said by Alder in Pokemon Black and White.
Even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
When this is stated in the game, your rival is telling the champion Alder that he wishes to be the most powerful trainer in the world and become champion. Alder asks him what he wants to do with all that power. Ultimately, the rival, Cheren, has no clue what he wants to do and that's when he starts to question what he really wants to do with this life.
This really speaks to me about Planet Bob. Every day we argue and debate with each other, but ultimately is there one side that has all the answers on Planet Bob? Even if you disagree with what the person you are debating with is saying, does that make what they are saying worthless?
It seems like every day so many people here just throw insults at each other because we disagree. What we should do is take other people's viewpoints, regardless of if we agree or not, and use it to learn from each other and use it to think through our own view points. Because the spread of ideas is much easier to spread through disagreeing than through agreeing. If everyone agreed about everything all the time, not only would this game be boring, but how would anyone learn any more about politics here on Planet Bob? Ultimately, this game is built on people disagreeing with each other about opinions, so there's no reason to belittle and insult one another because we disagree.
I know this one is a little bit shorter than my previous blogs, but it was meant more to get people thinking and hopefully it does just that.
