The portion of Korach presents us with the only open rebellion to the authority of Moses in his lifetime. Two of the ringleaders were Dathan and Aviram from the tribe of Reuben who Moses invited to a meeting to discuss their issues. They gave him the cold shoulder and Moses responded with anger. 
A rebbe of mine, Rabbi Chaim Dov Altusky, asked a sharp question noting that up to that point Moses was already sorely challenged by Korach but responded with measured arguments. What was different this time? His answer was that as bad as Korach behaved he still engaged with Moses while Dathan and Aviram ignored him; they were acting like Moses was a non factor. 
In our polarized times we deal with people who have sharply different perspectives but it is especially important to remain engaged. We have to always remember to see the humanity behind whatever positions they may epouse.
