There are several words and phrases that I think we should voluntary ban from discussion and dialog. I hear them often, and they seem to me to be ways of feigning an argument when there is no substance, devices to avoid facing the consequences of a good argument. Rather than furthering a dialog, they shut it down and actually mischaracterize the other's statements very uncharitably. Here they are:
labeling a criticism as an "attack"
dismissing disapproval as "bashing"
mistaking a moral argument for a legal one and insisting that "people have a right to do what they want"
avoiding making a substantive response by stating, "Well, that's your opinion."
These are phrases unworthy of a good dialog where both people should make a good case and acknowledge when one is made. Be on the lookout for them, and examine your own rhetoric for these tricks of the tongue.
