Let’s say, for example, I believe there are two kinds of people and you don’t. So what! Or the opposite, you believe there are two kinds of people and I don’t. Ditto!
I believe there have always been two kinds of people––where never the twain shall meet.
And it never can meet because each person’s certainty about what-is (and how-things-should-be-done) is, at bottom, a belief. And a belief, any belief, e.g., religious, political, moral, what–is, how-things-should-be-done, can’t be changed by rational argument. There is no argument that will convince a person who already believes there is no argument that can challenge what they believe to change his or her mind.
When I try to convince someone of my superior reasoning, or save them from an obvious (to me) error, I am tilting at windmills, wasting my time, and being rude. I have never gotten along with know-it-alls and I cringe when I find myself explaining to someone else why my way of thinking is best.
So in the end, for me, there really are only two kinds of people: me and you.
––and I just love you for your nutty ideas.
