     The problem becomes acute when the disagreement is such one
party wishes to put the other party in jail for their view.

     This was hashed out on the politics list and needed be
restarted here but example I gave was the pro lifers and the pro choicers.

     This is not a simple symmetrical disagreement.  The pro choicers
are not trying to jail the prolifers for not getting an abortion.

     If I were a prochoicer I would find it hard to agree to disagree
with the pro lifers, because I would be sanctioning their efforts
to ruin my life.

     On the other hand there are lots of disagreements that others
don't mind others having because they don't get in the way of each
others life style.

     I like lorna doones, my girl friend hates them.  Cant figure
out why, but its ok.
