Agree to disagree?
Posted June 3, 2012on:
How many times have you had a debate, friendly or not, and have the phase “Let’s agree to disagree!” cross someone’s lips?
I say no to that, especially if the other party is only disagreeing for the sake of doing so. The only time I buy that statement is when both parties have agreed that one plays the devil’s advocate.
If not, there is no intellectual or practical reason for the exchange.
Let us not agree to disagree. Let us disagree with facts, reason, or logic.
