Article full text: 

The author talks about the absence of a dialogue in culture in the Egyptian society. Additionally he also considers the inability of Egyptians to engage in any form of positive dialogue which could actually produce personal benefit to the parties.
The issue of dialogue caught the author’s attention when he was hosted by a satellite program and the guests spoke relentlessly without listening to one another, which included the host.
The author believes that some conditions have to be set in order to have a sound constructive dialogue. Dialogue cannot be successful without parties listening to each other and accepting one another’s opinions even if they differ from one’s own.
Dialogue can consolidate the relationship between the parties and lead to cooperation and understanding if it is based on respect and appreciation to the other parties’ views.
