Guidelines for Clearer Communications

I grew up in the Westboro Baptist Church. Here's why I left | Megan Phelps-Roper
Ted Talk

Been a few days since I watched this, but I liked it because she doesn't dwell on the evils of Westboro as much as assumes them, and then simply states her upbringing in that cult, and her coming to an emancipating enlightenment through honest discussions with others online.

About 9:00 in the 15-minute video, she lists what she learned from these enlightening discussions, and she lists her guidelines for clearer communications, which are simple and should be obvious but are really profound.

Don't assume bad intent.

Ask questions.

Stay calm.

Make the argument.

Discussions tonight reminded me of this. Might be a helpful vid for someone.
