Rob, you are being pedantic – focussing too much on the small details or formal rules. 

 


hierarchy
미국식 [|haɪərɑːrki] 영국식 [|haɪərɑːki]
a way of organising people according to their importance 
[명사] (특히 사회나 조직 내의) 계급[계층], (큰 조직의) 지배층[고위층], 격식 (사상·개념 등의) 체계

In a battle,you position yourself in a hierarchy - one is on top of the other, and then there is arguing that comes with a contempt in which it's not just that I don't accept your point of view, is that, I actually really think you’re a lesser human being.


contempt
미국∙영국 [kənˈtempt]
a dislike or lack of respect for someone or something 
[명사] 경멸, 멸시, (법규·위험 등을) 개의하지 않음, 무시

In a battle,you position yourself in a hierarchy - one is on top of the other, and then there is arguing that comes with a contempt in which it's not just that I don't accept your point of view, is that, I actually really think you’re a lesser human being.

 


a point of view
someone’s perspective on something
(무엇에 대한 개인의) 관점[견해], (무엇을 판단·관찰하는) 견지[관점] (=angle)

In a battle,you position yourself in a hierarchy - one is on top of the other, and then there is arguing that comes with a contempt in which it's not just that I don't accept your point of view, is that, I actually really think you’re a lesser human being.

 


compromising
미국식 [|kɑːmprəmaɪzɪŋ] 영국식 [|kɒmprəmaɪzɪŋ]
[형용사] 낯 뜨거운, 남부끄러운 
The BBC podcast 'Seriously' has listed some tips for disagreeing better, including not aiming for the middle ground – another way of saying 'compromising'.

 


intently
미국∙영국 [inténtli] 
[부사] 골똘하게, 여념없이, 오로지
It also suggests speaking truthfully, listening intently – that means giving all your attention to what’s being said - and aiming for empathy.

 


civility
미국∙영국 [səˈvɪləti] 
polite behaviour  
[명사] 정중함, 공손함, 예의상 하는 말

Disagreement is necessary if society is to progress and a society that values civility over justice and truth would simply be a recipe for stagnation.



stagnation
미국∙영국 [stæɡnéiʃən]
staying the same and not developing
[명사] 굄, 침체, 정체; 부진, 불경기 (=depression)

Disagreement is necessary if society is to progress and a society that values civility over justice and truth would simply be a recipe for stagnation.
