I've come to understand that a person can jusitify anything to themselves.
Label a person into a group you disagree with and you can completely dismiss them.
Alienate them as somehow subhuman and you wont bat an eye when they are mistreated and abused.
Give in to toxic triablism and that "us vs them" attitude can even penitrate the most "religious" of us.
It's a shame mankind has forgotten how interconnected we really are. How the wealth of our differences enrich us all.
You speak of freedom yet hate your fellow American if they exercise their right to disagree with you, including those who will do anything, including risking death to become one.
You proclaim patriotism yet stand by while our President insults war hero's. Men and women who have served honourably.
May time be your judge. And may our Lord have more mercy on you're soul, than you have shown for your fellow man.
Be a human before being a Republican or Democrat. Listen to your brother and sister before starting an argument.
Its not as difficult as this society might have you believe. And we are not as different as your local news station would like you to believe.
A difference in ideologies does not disqualify someone else heart felt stance. Do not let a disagreement blind your heart to the human element. To compassion and to empathy for your fellow man or woman.
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)
