Reminder to Self

The next time you are in an argument with someone over a public policy, stop and ask yourself: Can you summarize your opponent’s position in words that he would recognize and accept? ... If you feel the need to mischaracterize the views of those you disagree with, odds are you are secretly very insecure about your own beliefs.

--John Goodman, "Are you ready to debate?"
