Many who respond to something disagree with it. That’s to be expected. Agreeing tends to motivate people less than disagreeing. And when you agree there’s less to say. You could expand on something the author said, but he has probably already explored the most interesting implications. When you disagree you’re entering territory he may not have explored.

The result is there’s a lot more disagreeing going on, especially measured by the word. That doesn’t mean people are getting angrier. The structural change in the way we communicate is enough to account for it. But though it’s not anger that’s driving the increase in disagreement, there’s a danger that the increase in disagreement will make people angrier. Particularly online, where it’s easy to say things you’d never say face to face.

If we’re all going to be disagreeing more, we should be careful to do it well.

Y-Combinator founder Paul Graham explores how to disagree and offers a hierarchy of the 7 types of disagreement – an excellent complement to philosopher Daniel Dennett’s guide to criticizing with kindness and Susan Sontag’s three steps to refuting any argument.

Also see Graham on prestige vs. purpose and how to make wealth.

One for Auckland people perhaps, but Nat Cheshire’s Semipermanent AKL 2014 speech stood out as one of, if not THE, most poetic and heartfelt speeches in Semi Permanent Auckland history.
