McAdams On: Civility
Well said, Deborah, and kudos for omitting a link to the original clip, and thus refusing to help perpetuate such harmful and yet strangely socially acceptable behaviour in our society. It never ceases to amaze me, how intensely rudely, inconsiderately or downright maliciously such a vast majority of our society's people act, or how much humour they seemingly find in other's misfortune, as a course of their daily existence, while in the same instant, they cower, hiding themselves from identification, lest they become victims of someone else's identical, evil, and yet somehow apathetically-acceptable mindset, or, they go to any possible extreme, in their diabolical drive to retaliate at someone who has perpetrated the same crime on them. Crime? You bet it is, whether we treat it as socially acceptable, or not. Thanks, Deborah, for speaking up about the advanced decay of certain necessary yet ignored values in our social structure, and their impact in further eroding our seemingly near-nonexistent sense of right action in our lives.
