Henry Kissinger

International relations are built on the beliefs that guide and represent countries' outlooks on global affairs, i.e., the world orders of different countries. Despite some world orders being based on state sovereignty and mutual respect, such as the one forged in 17th-century Europe following decades of war, not all world views are as effective in preventing conflicts. Be respectful of the people with whom you are debating. Next time you're involved in a heated debate, remember that showing respect to your conversation partners, even in small ways like extending the same greeting to everyone, can make a huge difference. As an example, every diplomat was treated equally at the conference that led to the Peace of Westphalia, regardless of the power of their nation. In the end, the situation calmed down, and a generally satisfactory outcome was achieved.
