You will prepare and submit a term paper on Should We Tolerate People We Disapprove of in Order to Show them Respect, or because We Cannot Bring Ourselves to Respect Them. Your paper should be a minimum of 2500 words in length. For one to be tolerant, he or she must disapprove of other people’s views or behavioral patterns. The second condition is that for an individual to be tolerant, he or she must be in a position to counteract his or her disapproval. Tolerance is exhibited by personal restraint from efforts geared towards overcoming the disapproved views. Some individuals exhibit strong tolerance in a positive manner by exhibiting understanding and respecting the views of others. However, intolerance is evident when one chooses to exhibit indifference or superiority when he or she does not agree with the views of others. Tolerance is one of the outstanding virtues promoted in modern society, which beliefs in liberalism. In a liberal society, people have the right to hold a diverse range of views. Notably, disapproval is the basis of tolerance. Unlike the views of many people, tolerance is not dependent on people’s subjective dislikes. On the contrary, disapproval is a precondition for tolerance. In modern society, tolerance is promoted as a critical political principle that can ensure that people with diverse views and religions can coexist peacefully. .
The term tolerance has received criticism as a term that disrespects other people’s beliefs actions and religion. Notably, opponents of tolerance believe that respect should be the right term in accepting other people’s cultures and lifestyles. Many philosophers argue that people’s races, religions, and cultures are not aspects that deserve “putting up with”. On the contrary, they are aspects that other people should learn to respect and acknowledge fully, even if they do not agree with them (Zakaras 2013, p. 84). In many cases, expressing tolerance has been interpreted negatively. Many people opine that tolerating people translates to the fact that it is impossible to respect them. Proponents of respect argue that one may disapprove of opposing views, but still be able to respect them.
