Civil contention: not weakness but strength
Some mistake civility with ducking controversy. Weakness. Nothing could be further from the truth. One can passionately contend (OK, fight) for the right, but with, as I proposed in the Army Corps of Engineers: cordial confrontation. Up front: a key statement from Os Guinness, followed by more excerpts from The Case for Civility. Stay tuned. Having finished the book, I will, in time, sum up his most worthy, salient points.
Properly understood and rightly ordered, diversity and particularity are not a matter of weakness, but strength. Playing safe through what is often a pale and diluted unity becomes self-defeating. Such milquetoast diffidence discourages individual passion, constricts real diversity, and blocks what is often the real secret of an individual’s or an organization’s success—the power of their faith in all its stubborn particularity.
