Thinking Lessons Revisited DFQ#6 – Muslim Authour Irshad Manji
“Praise Allah for the Internet! With the web making self-censorship irrelevant—someone else is bound to say what you won’t—it became a place where intellectual risk-takers finally exhaled.”
The daily feedback question is: ‘What is someone else saying that you won’t risk saying?’
On reflection I am not sure that I have answered the question directly, however, I am confident the intention of the question is to get the debate going, not to set a logic test.
Here is my response, which I would not revise at all if I were to re-consider this question.
I love to say controversial things, but I am pained to announce with the same level of confidence, my most honest thoughts if considered controversial by others.
If we state what we won’t risk, is it a moot point because we have now stated it?
Actual statement: I’m sick of people saying and acting as though cultural differences are only superficial and don’t pose significant problems when attempting to co-exist.
