Yeah. Though quickness can’t be considered separately all alone without other important traits... Quick-and-easy vs quick-and-dirty.

I would add that the debate is the best medium to advance. Nevertheless, the debate should be always based on dialogue, tolerance, and empathy.

Which is preferable: quickness in response, or thoughtful reflection before response?

In debates today we see quick responses too often devolve into a battle of insults rather than intelligent discussion.


We should look to the past to learn from it, not destroy our future because of it — FounDit
