Ouvir, ouvir, ouvir

por Carla Hilário Quevedo, em 25.11.08

"Genuine controversy, fair cut and thrust before a common audience, has become in our special epoch very rare. For the sincere controversialist is above all things a good listener. The really burning enthusiast never interrupts; he listens to the enemy's arguments as eagerly as a spy would listen to the enemy's arrangements. But if you attempt an actual argument with a modern paper of opposite politics, you will find that no medium is admitted between violence and evasion. You will have no answer except slanging or silence."

 

G. K. Chesterton, "The New Hypocrite", What's Wrong With The World.
