Bubbles of intolerance

Our society is now made up of echo chambers of polarised opinions separated often behind screens, where people spout hate from their keyboards.

It’s about banning, ridiculing, boycotting, smearing, shaming, shouting over, and total intolerance of anything other than the views of our bubble. It’s all anti.

There is no conversation, no dialogue, no compromise.

The bubbles of intolerance will leave us all deaf to any other view, which is an increasingly dangerous position for the human race to be in. The lack of discussion breeds more hatred, more extreme views without any counter-balance to moderate them.

We all need to burst out of our own bubbles and connect with the opposite views and seek to understand, listen and without evaluation.

It’s hard for all of us, but it is the only way to stop extreme views on all sides and the only way to kill hatred, bring back civility and embrace the power that compromise will bring to all humans.

One human race will never become a reality all the time there is hate.

Born the same

Every single one of the over 7 billion of us on this planet were born the same, an equal human being.

Then our environment and circumstances will shape us.

Before hating, before judging, before killing, before repressing, before enslaving, before acting against another, remember we are all the same human race.

Get out from behind the keyboard, the curtains, shut off the voice of hate from the media, get out your house and meet, embrace and get close to other humans, especially the ones we’ve judged.

Then try to hate up close or instead choose to empathise and understand we all started in the same place.

Perhaps, we don’t need more missiles we need to reach out and embrace each other and understand our differences.
