Free thinking is a necessary prelude to an open, progressive, and accepting nation and society. It is essential to have a forum to be able to communicate with them even if it is at the cost of being proved wrong.
This would help people to think differently, expand the existing horizons of thinking, and to be able to evolve innovative ways to refute or implement new ideas. A spirit of inquiry and a sense of inquisitiveness is important for any community, at an individual and collective level.
“The free thinking of one age is the common sense of the next” – Matthew Arnold
