In response to the letter (“Opinions should not be forced upon others,” Sun City West Independent, March 10, 2021), I would like to reply to the writer who found offense at my opinion from a previous letter.

Proven: Everyone has right to share their views

Posted

In response to the letter (“Opinions should not be forced upon others,” Sun City West Independent, March 10, 2021), I would like to reply to the writer who found offense at my opinion from a previous letter.

Mr. Bagnato, you are a fervent and frequent contributor to this publication. You have stated your opinion dozens and dozens of times over the years; a monthly occurrence on most every topic local and beyond. Most of those articles have been in the negative or argumentative vein.

How is my letter to the editor any different that the dozens you have written?

This is perhaps my third letter to the Independent in six years. And force? Are you serious? Your feelings were acknowledged; how you wanted to share it with Sun City West was the point. If you wish to be controversial and “stir the pot,” then you should be more accepting of others’ opportunities to express their own points of view, even if it differs from your own.

That door swings both ways. It’s a “freedom.”
