how does one detach from a view?, do they just say, i have no direct experience of this?
take care of mindfulness, and mindfulness will take care of you.

Compare the view to the four noble truths and apply the eightfold path when upholding that view.
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.
"Others will misconstrue reality based on personal perspectives, firmly holding onto and not easily discarding them; We shall not misconstrue reality due to our personal perspectives, nor firmly holding them, but easily discarded."

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!
