Today, many clamor for civility. Respect while disagreeing is admirable, but what many call civility is really conflict avoidance. Instances of confronting you at the appropriate time and place with subjects about which you would rather avoid is not incivility.
Logic is an often missing component along with critical thought. Right beside civility is the desire for bipartisanship and compromise.
What we should want as a society is the best approach at the time. It is entirely possible to have compromise say, between the right and the left and have the worst solution possible, because neither side's solution space included the best ideas of the discipline required. Or compromise eliminated the actual tenets of a working solution.
We also fail to ascribe maladaptive motives to a side in the desire for false objectivity. Sometimes a bad actor really is a bad actor.
Finally, narrative is what sticks in people's heads, for better or worse. Narratives must be properly developed if people are to remember your messages.
One of the most important areas for appropriate and effective narrative is the vehicle of the economy. We must succeed in delivering our message loudly, clearly, and consistently.
