It seems that in the most fundamental way, man is changing. We are losing our humanity. We worry too much that others are trying to defeat us, or to destroy “our” way of life. We think that to survive, we must lash out at the world to keep it the way we want it to be. I think fear is the primary reason for this. The fearmongers are busy stoking the flames to keep us in this mode. I pray that, like so many times in the past, this fear will be overcome.
The current fearmonger-in-chief, who was recently dejected from the Oval Office, does it to get attention. His extreme narcissism DEMANDS attention. Unfortunately, stupidity, as shown in my current weekly series, is the primary way that allowed embers to become a bonfire. (Click here to see that series)
I have come to adamantly believe that there are two very different sides to all of us. The good side gives us empathy, and the dark side drives us to selfishness. The good side is responsible for our humanity. We are all in this together, and the more we help each other, the better all our lives will become. The bad side is primarily about selfishness.
