Controversy and you. I can't believe this!

It is easy to read and hear things with which we agree. Facebook, Twitter, other social media platforms, and news aggregators oftentimes become an echo chamber of our own beliefs or present extreme opinions opposite from our own in ways that make it difficult for us to consider them without being immediately offended.

There are many controversial issues in our world. People have differing views on life, the universe, and everything! Instead of taking up arms and pressing your opinion without understanding the different viewpoints of an issue, take a minute to read and understand why some people oppose your viewpoint by understanding theirs, or at least by knowing the issues surrounding and compounding the discussion. Understanding a viewpoint is not the same as agreeing with it.

This is your chance to access different viewpoints in a single place from a variety of source types including academic articles, viewpoints, reference sources, videos, podcasts, statistics, newspapers, magazines, and websites.
