Billy Joe Fudge: Followup on Civics Lesson
On Civil Discourse, and quote from DeFoe on need for more Listening
By Billy Joe Fudge
Anger often emanates from those who are insecure in their existence, who lack the mental and emotional discipline to patiently think through problems, seek solutions and articulate their positions.
Our society and culture has become so impersonal, uncaring and isolationist in manner. "No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent..." John Donne said. I am so saddened when trying to converse with folks who are so afraid of what I might say that they seek to drown me out rather than listening. Relationships are not sought for the good of all and to benefit and grow the community, it seems, but for personal and selfish reasons. - BJF
