The misunderstood tolerance
A closed-minded person is one who pretends that everyone thinks like her and those who don't do so are despised. Anyway, it is important to note that with certain things we must be inflexible, if what is at stake is freedom or the welfare of another living being.
It's important pointing that sometimes the concept of closure or tightness is misunderstood . If a person opposes another because they believe that their attitudes are not ethical, they are not being closed, but advocating for justice. Therefore, the dividing line the tolerance of the closure is very thin; You cannot be tolerant of abuse or violence in any of its aspects.

For example: a vegan arguing with a carnivore about the importance of a strictly vegetable diet is not closed, but is fighting against abuse and abuse of another species. Knowing how to discern the difference between closeness and tolerance can be essential to lead a healthy and ethical life.
