Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?

Just because people die for something or some cause doesn’t mean they were right. Passion and zeal  are wonderful, but they need to be laced with pragmatism and intelligence. Logic makes us think, emotion makes us act. It’s usually not a good idea to exclude either.

Never assume the other person is damaged just because they don’t agree with you, and don’t assume they’re inferior because they don’t subscribe to your particular standards. There’s a name for that practice: arrogance.

  1. “Russia already has a bully for its president. We don’t need another one here” – Never assume the other person is damaged just because they don’t agree with you.

    “…we all know the brilliant rate of success of economists and economic predictions and advice. I think it’s overing somewhere below five percent.” – Don’t assume they’re inferior because they don’t subscribe to your particular standards.

  2. This is hilarious. Half of your posts are you assume people are inferior because they don’t subscribe to your particular standards. Or maybe “Dumb-Ass Stupid Management” is a term of respect…

    • I think you miss the point. I point out deficits that don’t stand up to standards of normalcy in customer service and performance. In the case of our Australian friend’s comments, it’s the typical yelping: My way wasn’t accepted so the world is going to end. We’re doomed.

      Thanks for reading the blog. You must be reading it for a reason.

  3. “Candidates like Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders scare me only because they attract so many people who actually believe they’re intelligent and capable of leading this country. Trump is simply a bully with a pulpit” – Alan Weiss’s The Controversial Column: November 3, 2015…

    What about never assuming the other person is damaged just because they don’t agree with you, and don’t assume they’re inferior because they don’t subscribe to your particular standards.

    Indeed, why can’t we all just get along? Excellent question!
