Believing in something doesn’t need arrogance

Against mentality causes unnecessary misery in the world

Re: Fighting for beliefs needs to be relabeled (Letters, Jan. 9)

Thank you, Joanna Wilkinson. The “against” mentality causes so much unnecessary misery in this world and is usually a product of misinformation, and is often persuasive in intent.

The only cure I can think of is if we all made a practice of demanding demonstrative, measurable evidence from anyone who disparages another.

Only then can we rise above the banal.
