Secular Humanism: Negotiation and Compromise

We cultivate the arts of negotiation and compromise as a means of resolving differences and achieving mutual understanding.

This affirmation surprised me a little. It hadn't occurred to me.

However, there will be differences among people, so it might be important to have some ideas about how to deal with those well. I brainstormed a list here, partly inspired by Biblical passages, and partly just random.

"Kill those who differ from you."
"Imprison those who differ from you."
"Scream loudly at those who differ from you."
"Whine about those who differ from you."
"Learn from those who differ from you."
"Go along with those who differ from you."
"Dialogue with, when possible, and come to better ideas with those who differ from you."
