We drive people into the clutches of evil. Because not everyone is (always) strong.

I said something on Twitter today, which has been on my mind for a long time:

Here is the original text in its entirety:

I do not believe that it is helpful to cause nothing but resistance and defensiveness in any person who says something we dislike or find offensive, by publicly disciplining and reprimanding that person.

 

For a long time we lived a culture in which language was different, and yes, that had its origin in wrong beliefs. This is how human development works: what seems true today is refuted and corrected tomorrow. Just think Galilei aka. flat Earth etc.

 

So, not all of the language we still use is what we would call “politically correct” today. One develops faster, the other a bit slower. That’s always how it is, that’s part of human imperfection.

 

It is unbelievably arrogant how some people talk over the mouth of others and publicly humiliate them. What did you think? That they’re grateful and insightful and immediately become your friends and admirers?

 

It’s (partly) your arrogance and superiority that drives these people into the clutches of people who have no good intentions at all and are looking for simple victims.

 

ADVICE: Give people time and stop treating them like little stupid kids. That contradicts your own ideals. Help others to become better versions of themselves, and maybe they help you one day to become a better version of yourself, too.

 

And maybe, JUST MAYBE, this will make this world a better place. Thank you for your attention.

Say something, preferably nice...
