OTHERING can be an addiction.  It’s easy to hate.  Being passionately engaged in partisan politics doesn’t make a person brave.

It’s a sorry existence to living a life that finds meaning by hating others.  How hollow must life be to find hope in crusades that take away human dignity.  

We feed the beast.  Society feeds the leviathan.  Money and media peddle fear and milk our souls to nothing.  Every segment pits man against man.  Red should hate Blue.  Blue should hate Red.  We nurture the beast with our fear of losing the small piece of the planet we never owned. 

We must starve the beast.  It must die.

It’s easy to OTHER.  It’s difficult to live to higher ideals.  We must break the chains that bond us.  A better way is possible.

We are better together.
