Tolerance - an underutilized virtue

Tomorrow, 16 November is the UN International Day for Tolerance. This day of observation was started in 1996 after the 1995 Year for Tolerance. Tolerance is surely a cornerstone of the United Nations which was born out of the ashes of World War 2 and a general desire by all nations and all peoples not to repeat that mistake or that of the First War. Tolerance is a very useful approach as it does not put the demands of liking or agreeing with another party. Only that we tolerate and respect their view (within reason). Tolerance goes to the heart of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and not only should it be recognized politically and legally, but it should be practiced at all levels by all people.
