#WednesdayWisdom: Speak your mind

Standard

In some ways, you could say politeness got us here, where we are, right now. And the people who steered that hulking, creeping, century-past ship counted on it.

They’re still counting on it.

Right now, they’re fanning themselves at the idea of the temerity of a ripped sheet of paper, as though that is the biggest crime to happen in the last three years.

Oh please.

Consequences for behavior belong on the actors. Don’t indulge false outrage. Challenge it. Don’t buy into the the ridiculous notion that all points of view, including the ones based in something very far from reality, are valid. Don’t be polite.

Speak your mind.

With that comes an avalanche of trolls, as I can attest. But block them. Don’t argue with them, they are the parasites that rush to the aid of their hosts.

Now it’s more important than ever. Speak your mind.

And have as good a Wednesday as today’s events will allow.
