First topic message reminder :

Logic was established as a formal discipline by Aristotle, a bit before George Boole.

Thinking for yourself has been replaced by The Media, whose received opinion is less trouble.

Reason is what I try to employ in discourse, but it's of no consequence if others prefer to impose their own emphasis.

Good Manners  disappeared with the anonymity provided by the internet.

Honesty has become applicable mainly to those who haven't been caught yet.

Heart Convenient for having become disposable.

Cynicism  You betcha!  Caveat emptor.

I'm friendly you're obsequious
I persuade you preach
I'm tenacious you're bull-headed
I'm resilient you're repetitive
I'm confident you're supercilious

I'll try and think up a few more. .. Smile

I'm open minded, you're gullible
I'm honest, you're rude.
I'm humble, you're servile
I'm sceptical, you're cynical.

That seems so often to be the tone of debate - just goes round in circles

These are most often three part, such as,

I am firm; you are stubborn; he is pig-headed.
