the riot act

the riot act – “Many of the conversations about libraries both inside and outside the blogosphere have been described as “too nice.” People seem hesitant to disagree with colleagues, and great dialogues seem stifled by sometimes passive aggressive, sometimes simply naïve tendencies. I strongly believe that nothing bad has ever come out of disagreement, and that a healthy discourse is one in which opposing viewpoints are voiced and heard. Avenues for change are shut down when we shut up, and often, we need that dialogue to make change possible.”
