Everything is not one way or another.
People are not all this way or that way.
You’re better off speaking for yourself in your own opinions then to generalize for an entire department, an entire group, an organization or a corporation.
“We believe,” or “we think,” is not a truthful statement in 99.9% of occasions.
You know what a few people think, not everyone thinks.
The one exception is if you are president or chairman of an organization where, in your role, you’re the spokesperson for the firm and you damn well better speak to that organization and its principles and values.
Otherwise, get used to speaking for yourself and not everyone else.
