Which is better, a world where people have very strong opinions that they cannot be shaken of, or a world where people's opinions can change as easily as they are pushed? Please explain your reasoning.

    Oct 29 2013: Opinions, when supported by strong reasons, should be strong enough. Unless supported by proper facts and reasons, opinions one shouldn't have opinions, else shouldn't have at all. Only if one has enough confidence to support the opinion with related facts and reasons, one should opine freely with all the conviction and strength possible.
