Argument can't solve a problem, but the question really is; do problems cause or remove problems? Which is worse from your perspective... a place where lots of people disagree with each other, or a place where everybody is forced to hold the same opinion? I'd prefer the first, tbh... that's just the way I look at it.
Everybody being forced to hold the same opinion is when people are disagreeing the most lol Thats the kind of situation that makes anybody thankful they can have a voice but my voice being heard doesn't mean I have to disrespect you, arguing and calling you wrong I'm on a more personal level saying we would have more contentment if we stop at least one argument thats ongoing with someone in our personal lives, like say, that guy that always wants to argue we all know. If we don't take the bait and argue with a family member or a co-worker or something like that, we do ourselves a favor every time. It got very muddled, the political system is one thing, but I'm trying more to make a comment on personal lives and dealing with people.

I mean inherently... like through social structures... not through physical force.
"Thats the kind of situation that makes anybody thankful they can have a voice but my voice being heard doesn't mean I have to disrespect you, arguing and calling you wrong"
Definitely. It's better to be polite in my opinion too. But sometimes I do think it is necessary to point out somebody wrong; it's just best to do it in a very kind way as to avoid other difficulties one might have.

Oh, I'd agree there too. It's just I don't think argument is totally useless. It creates problems, definitely, but it's not a total problem maker.

there is a difference between an argument and a debate. debates are positive and can help resolve issues. arguments are essentially contradiction and are a bit pointless, i'd agree. but if nothing was debated, we might as well be in a socialist state, and we all know how they turn out.
Thats it, thats the part right there. debate emphasizes something very different, like keeping it a discussion, where as argument is very personal, not talking about a thing so much as talking about the person who represents it. I think the difference is in the attitude, drama never solved anything, we can address the problems without losing our temper or feeling hurt about them... where it needs it of course you stand for what you stand for and don't back down from your position. I don't know about any of you, but I can't think right when I'm angry, how could anybody else Im not in the politics section because I'm not talking about that really, I'm talking about philosophy. More on line with like dealing with other people in personal life.
i see what you mean. i suppose arguments are part of human nature, in a way, although i also do not see the point to them. i think that when emotions are running high it can often be almost impossible to just calm down and talk, though.
