Maybe we should all “go back” to our conscience, our compassion, and our civility. Before you pounce on someone’s post and denounce them as a foe, try an ounce of kindness. Social media is often like keyboard kickboxing without rules or referee.
If politics is about imposing your party’s will on others, rather than working together to govern, it leads to authoritarianism or chaos.
If you are unkind to people you shouldn’t be surprised that they are unkind back to you. Break the cycle of unkindness. Be kind to those who disagree with you.
Motives are important. Meanness is motivated by fear, apathy by self-focus, kindness and compassion by conscience.
Conscience is our internal navigational app. To ignore it is to wander in confusion.
I appreciate people who speak out when they believe injustice is being done. It takes courage to speak up for others. Will you?
