Thoughts about Prior Thoughts

"Thoughts on Rankings" (Food vs's Books) was a post I made in the middle of December in this Daily Comment section. It was a short comment, pointing out that a subjective opinion, may be less subjective, with restaurants than it is with books; there is a point where restaurant food just really is bad. This is probably true of books but when it is, it is just is more subjective?

I thought of that today again as I pondered why so many things are subjective? Why are we so different? Why do different people see things so differently? I wondered about the goal of learning to love other people?

Maybe that is the answer.  We have to cut each other some slack. We have to be willing to allow people to be different, but at the same time be willing to look and find out how much we really are the same.
