I’ve written alot about the hate I see online and elsewhere. I make no secret that the hate I see that disturbs me most is that coming from various social justice proponents. The WHY of that is that I feel it ultimately hurts the cause by turning off those in the middle and creating a backlash.
History is full of political examples of that type. The pendulum swings too far in one direction, creating a tyranny, then people rise up in backlash and create another tyranny of an opposite nature. The Romans and the Vandals, the French Monarchy and Napoleon, The Czars of Russia and the Communists, etc…
It’s true with social issues also. Those convinced against their will are of the same opinion still, and angrier about it. Let me get to the photographic proof here. I’m seeing more and more of this kind of shirt around:
“Nope; Don’t Care”
That’s the attitude (or worse) that I’m worried about all the hate creating. How far back the other way will the bad folks try to push everything if that becomes the response to everything? We NEED to return to talking to each other, using logic, and tempering it with heart.
