LYDIA OLADEJO: IF YOU CANNOT ARGUE INTELLECTUALLY, THEN YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS ARGUING AT ALL

LYDIA OLADEJO: IF YOU CANNOT ARGUE INTELLECTUALLY, THEN YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS ARGUING AT ALL

So I just saw a post on YabaLeft about 15 yahoo boys that were arrested by EFCC and coffins and charms were discovered in their house. As usual, people were condemning the guys while some were saying the guys were ritualists and that yahoo boys don’t do rituals. One comment struck my attention… This guy went ahead to say that those condemning yahoo boys are SLAVES and that yahoo boys are kings. Immediately I saw that comment, I said ”Mo fo oo”…. One Aunty even went ahead to place deadly curses on people condemning yahoo boys.

I honestly do not understand why someone would say something like that. If you want to defend yourself or someone else, do so intellectually. Do so without getting aggressive. Why call people names? Personally, I stay away from some discussions because I don’t like arguing with people that just won’t argue intellectually. These days, I just avoid rash arguments because I cannot allow someone to come and give me headache for nothing. I tell people that if what you do makes you sleep so well at night, continue doing it. Everything you do is between you and your Creator.

The moment you get unnecessarily defensive and start calling people names or cursing people because they do not see things from your own point of view, it means your level of stupidity surpasses your level of intelligence.
