  •  A thought from Jung (12+ / 0-)

    "If people can be educated to see the lowly side of their own natures, it may be hoped that they will also learn to understand and to love their fellow men better. A little less hypocrisy and a little more tolerance towards oneself can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures."

    —C. G. Jung—Two Essays on Analytical Psychology: New Paths in Psychology, 1912

    If we would aspire to be good, lets begin with ourselves.  We ARE all walking in shoes too small for us.  Demonizing the other might feel good, but it misses the point.

      to express my thoughts (below) and here you are, Timothy, writing with clarity that which I could not express so easily.  I should have read the comments, first.

      One thing even with my mind muddled, there are some great thinkers here and I always appreciate reading all of you.

      Well done, Lawrence!
