how does one detach from a view?, do they just say, i have no direct experience of this?
to practice patience with others rough speech, perceive there words as only sound, patience is the path to nibbana.

Compare the view to the four noble truths and apply the eightfold path when upholding that view.

My understanding is that we should cultivate Right View (
Samma Ditthi) Seen things as they are.

This is to be done by practice and concentration. I found it was very dificult to practice non attachment. So I started practicing non anger (Metta). It did not cost me anything!
