"So because someone was unfair to you in the past, you're saying we should be unfair to someone else, even though we can change it?" I asked an acquaintance I was having an argument with.
"Yes." he said with certainty that showed he had already made up his mind and which clearly told me that the conversation was over.
Man, that's the kind of narrow-minded, self-centered attitude that causes wars.
And just to be clear here, it's not his actual position that I took fault with. It was his reason for his position which was so very wrong.
