Societies evolve based on the consciousness of the people inhabiting that society. One can simply not expect society to grow for good if there is no discourse. Civil discourse about the pressing issues of society has always been a catalyst for great revolutions that this world has seen.
Although it is considered that humanity is at its peak of sophistication and glory, we are still far from being ideal. There is still injustice and issues that are constantly breaking the social fabric. It means that now more than ever, we need to sit together and focus on what we’ve been doing wrong and how the social fabric can be fixed.
In this blog, I am going to narrow down some of the reasons that ensure how civil discourse is the most practical to fix the broken social fabric of the society we live in.
Here you go:
If the rising conflicts in the society are dealt with in a civil manner, they cause chaos that doesn’t favor anyone. Therefore, it is safe to say that civil discourse is pretty the most organized and healthiest way to find a solution to the problems that are causing the social fabric to break in the first place. All you have to do is use your voice for the people who might be suffering due to problems that need to be addressed by society as a whole.
You can’t expect to deal with a problem if you are unable to find the root cause. For example, if you have to address the problem of racism and how it is affecting the social fabric of society, then you have to dissect the whole problem to the micro level to reach a solution that ends the problem once in for all. It is not possible until the whole society takes part in the discourse and addresses the issue in a manner that brings the solution to the table.
Any social problem that is a threat to the very social fabric we are talking about can only be solved when an all-inclusive solution is reached. Civil discourse is a channel to give voice to everyone suffering from the problem. Hence, a solution that works for everyone is only possible when everyone’s voice is heard, and their issues are addressed without any discrimination.
Calling out those in power has never been a piece of cake in the entire history of humankind. People have been killed for raising their voices against those in power. However, thanks to democracy, we now have a right to take part in any discourse without the fear of being marginalized and persecuted. Therefore, it is very important that we practice our rights by engaging in civil discourse if we want to make this world a better place for generations to come.
