It’s become our new way to slander and crucify our fellow-man. The excuse we give to act less than we are. Our justification for ignoring what we should be paying attention to.
I suppose it’s born out of my rebellion against anyone trying to force me to conform to a specific label.
I refuse to join a group, vote a party line, or violate my conscience to keep someone out of office.
More times than not, reasonable people assume I think exactly as they do, and therefore against anyone they don’t like.
This is only because I am open-minded and more studied than most. I don’t gravitate to media talk shows and labels to judge a situation or person. And I find reasoned discussion, disagreement, and even debate, to be edifying and essential to society.
I believe that as we evolve as a human race, our problems and their answers likewise evolve. It is the way of spiritual maturity.
I cannot agree completely with any one ideology.
And I hope I never do.
