My personal principle is simple, I seek to learn and become better so when discussing political views if someone can enlighten me I am delighted. Even if that means I am wrong in my original opinions. For me as a mystic knowledge supersedes ego at all times.
There is an even stronger principle I’d like to share with you. Arguing with with a fellow citizen of the same Mother Land for some politician that doesn’t even know you exist, makes absolutely no sense. At the very least it will drain your power and weaken the connection with that real person in real time interacting with you. The person interacting with you, no matter their beliefs is at that moment immeasurably more important than someone not present. That is to be treasured in that moment by treating that other person with respect and dignity.
