I Disagree - This Statement Is An Insult

To say that "we see what we WANT to see" is to say that:

1. We are wishful thinkers, and believe that the truth is dependent on OUR DESIRES, not reality.
2. We are dishonest, and we ignore reality in preference to OUR DESIRES.
3. We are irrational, and we do not reach conclusions through examination; we merely restate OUR DESIRES as our conclusions.

These are insults to our characters. And "agreeing to disagree" is equally dishonest; you either HAVE REASONS and you can state them, or you HAVE NO REASONS, and you ARE IRRATIONAL.

So "agreeing to disagree" is truly of no value and would devalue "agreements."
