Do you always need to win an argument, have last word?

Yes, when I thought I was knowledgeable.
Now, I realize that I am fully ignorant, and other people may know something beyond my imagination. And it is not important to win an argument. When we learn to follow the majority, we will have beneficial unity. The majority may be wrong, and in such case we all will turn back to the right side. Luckily, I live in a community where there are no individual leaders. We work in institutions and we follow the majority at the final decisions after free and unfettered consultation. False and damaging decisions can be modified easily when we are always united in purpose. President is not our top executive, but only chairman of our meetings. Consultation and compassion are two lights of our guidance for the last two centuries.
God’s words are our last words.

Baha’u’llah says:

 It is incumbent upon everyone to observe God’s holy commandments, inasmuch as they are the wellspring of life unto the world. The heaven of divine wisdom is illumined with the two luminaries of consultation and compassion and the canopy of world order is upraised upon the two pillars of reward and punishment.

(Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 126)
