Do you think hearing different peoples perspective is equally important ?

I think it is important to hear different peoples point of views . Because (linking back to the school trip) if you see something and a freind sees it and a person who is walking by sees it they all have different points of view. So you can work out who is wright and who is wrong .

For insatnce:

The Military

Auang San Su Kiy

Bangladesh goverment

Rohinga

They would all see this issue for a different perspective

The Military would say that" we stand up for the mynamarese and we want to protect them the rohinga do not belong in this country and they are doing bad things . They are illigal immigrants and are illigaly living here so we are boming the rhakine state to make them leave."

Aung San Su Kiy would say"this issue is getting worse and we need to act quick there are too many people going into bangladesh ,soon the rhakine state will be emty the military will have nothing too do and everyone will be happy"

Bangladesh goverment will say"the rohingya need to stop coming into our country it is already poor and crowded now 1,000,000 more are coming in and staying in refugee caps that we have set up for them it is a really bad handeled situation"

A rohingya person will say " our famillies have lived here for many generations now we have suddenly been kicked out of mynamar and forced to flee to Bangladesh .The Military have set fire to many villages and all our stuff has been burnt,left behind or lost this is terrible"

So now we need to figure out who's story is correct and why and asking more questions to improve our understanding.

    This is a great discussion starter, good hedgehog! Well done for showing how open-minded you are and for giving other perspectives. You have received a star! What do other people think about this question? Are all perspectives equally important?

    I agree with good_hedgehog that everyone's viewpoint has to be equally important, even if we don't necessarily agree with it. We live in a world where free speech is valued as a basic human right. Everyone must be allowed to voice their opinion, although they may be saying things we don't want to hear. I thought about social media and how extremist groups get to share their ideas. I know many people are against this as it could persuade young people in particular to change their minds about something. However, if we don't allow these people to share their ideas, we are in effect censoring them and I believe this is always wrong. People should be allowed to make their own minds up and to do that they need to exposed to a full range of viewpoints.

    I think hearing different people ‘s perspective is not important because other people might write about racist thing and more, so my opinion is not important.( Not very important )

    I think it is important to share our opinions because everyone should be allowed to discuss their opinions. However some racist groups post racist comments on social media which is not ideal because they change thoughts of little children on social media and make them also think racist stuff

    I think it is important because it good be a really good opinion! Everyone is aloud to have an opinion but on the other hand sometimes they could be not true and spread then people might think bad stuff about that event\incident.

    I think we have to listen to their perspectives because we have to. If people are hearing us we should hear from them. Even though there are racist and disturbing we hVe to believe what they say even though we don't like it

    I know many people dislike some other people’s opinion because they could be racist and mean violence it’s fine but some people would like to hear other opinions because it’s important and it won’t be nice to be ignored.

    In my opinion, hearing different peoples perspectives is important. Aulthough you might not want to hear someone’s opinion, it is important to hear it because understanding others opinion might help you make up your mind. Some people think that their own opinion is important, but this means we can’t share our opinion just because some people might not agree. It could be argued that some people are more reliable than others , however we should be able to express our own opinions and stand up to our rights. Some rude opinions could encourage other people to be mean but it will hurt peoples feelings. But I think that it is important to listen to different peoples perspectives because we need to remember

    I think that everyone should have the law to speak even if their opinion is different we should still be able to hear from not only the important personnels you believe but inspect other peoples point of views and maybe think over your opinion once again. Maybe you thought that Rohingyas were the bad people however if you see their point of view then you can see what they have to say in their defence.

    I am going to agree with this question because if you put your opinion on social media about one situation one person can post one good paragraph and it can also change what’s happening around the world so everybody can be happy . Also if you don’t allow people to put there opinion online every situation will stay the same.

    Yes, I do, because it’s good to hear from other oppinions and their point of view! I really want to know why they think like this and what made them think like this in the
    very beginning.

    I think that every persons perspective is equally important because everyone must be able to give their opinion and you never no,even if it is a kid,it might be able to stop a world war.even if a person has a more likely to work,ath the other opinion should be respected like that one.

    Should Journalists have a point of view? In my opinion no,I think that because they don’t all tell the truth. The good journalists always keep there secrets to them selves.

    I think it is important to hear different peoples point of views because if you see something (a picture of the president) and someone else sees it, and a parent or a teacher sees it ,they all have a different point of view like if the parent sees that the president has blue eyes and the teacher sees that the president has no hair it’s all different perspectives but if the parent says that the president has blue eyes and then the teacher says that the president has blue eyes then they both have the same perspectives. I also disagree with good_hedgehog’s opinion because...
    For instance:
    • The military,
    • Auang San Su Kiy,
    • Bangladesh government,
    • Rohingya,
    They would all see it in a different perspective or they might all disagree with it.

    The military says that Auang san Su Kiy wasn’t standing up for her country (Mayanmar) because she was into the cameras and being popular.

    Auang San Su Kiy is saying that it was the terrorist who flooded Mayanmar and that they are living in Bangladesh.

    Bangladesh government is saying that Bangladesh is already poor so we are gonna get more poor people eating our food and drinks.

    The Rohingya’s are saying ,
    “Why are we going to Bangladesh when are head councillor is not even doing anything to stop the fleeing being happening.

      Well done for excellent reasoning shown in this post and for giving an example. I have given you a star for this! Have you done the activity in your BNC session about the different perspectives? If so, who did you decide to include in your news report and why?

    Every ones opinion must be heard even if you don't aggre ,It is a human right to have your say and not to be able to say what you have to say is a complete disgrace . Also , what everyone has to say is important and not necessarily wrong or right or even true and false , for that reason I disagree with the good _hedgog .To add on ,if you hear from every one a solution should appear into mind as what every says has quality in one way or another.
