Speaking Respectfully and Truthfully

I just read the post about the white guy rant..I am so thrilled right now, about the level of discourse that exists there, and is beginning to take shape on RW. Thanks to all the great thinkers on that particular thread!!!
That was my hope in establishing this forum – for people to speak respectfully and yet truthfully to other people, especially those they disagree with, without rancor and hatred. In kaballistic terms, that is called balancing judgment with mercy. That is a cool meditative state. I will write about it sometime.
That meditation helped me find a way to speak to people I had severely wronged, and to ask their forgiveness, (which was given to me). That is a great feeling, the feeling that you have been forgiven by people you love.
