It Takes Two to Have a Conversation

I recently spoke with a friend who had been interrogated by a zealot. She thought she was going to have a conversation (remember conversations?) but the zealot was having none of that, preferring instead to mix questions with accusations. 

Any responses were dismissed because zealots are not interested in hearing the other side. In their minds, there is no other side, you're either ignorant or evil. If you present a cogent argument, then you land in the second category.

My advice is not to attempt to have a conversation with anyone who's sizing you up for a re-education camp.

Or worse.
