And now for some extra stuff which just couldn’t be squozen into the “This Is You, Yes YOU.” post, no matter how hard I tried.
Since it seems that I wasn’t clear enough in the original post, I just wanted to see if I can fix that up a wee bit.
- In essence, I am just not happy with the “The End Justifies The Means” approach to problem solving.
- I feel really strongly that we would all benefit hugely if each and every one of us invested a great deal more thought and care, into every choice we make, about everything we say and do. I’d like to see a whole lot more of that.
- I think that whatever other people do or don’t do, this does not create a consequence-free zone for us to commit transgressions ourselves, no matter in how good a name those transgressions are committed.
- I think my overall intention was to illustrate that
- Pointing out other people’s transgressions is never a “get-out-of-jail-free card” for our own responsibility and accountability for our own behaviour, and
- It is really easy to transgress without noticing, in the name of “improvements”, and
- I think the whole world would be a hugely better place for us all to live in if more of these transgressions were minimised or eliminated, including those from “the good guys”.
Ok, these next bits were the ones which were originally going to be in the post but it was just waaaaay too much longer with them in.
I worked hard on them, and kind of like them, and besides, we bonded, so I couldn’t bear to just dump them like an old sock full of holes, so in the interests of my inability to throw stuff away, here they are.
