My post last week expressing frustration at militarism, bloodlust, and macho characters, will not have helped anyone. Dismissing people as broken or flawed leaves no room for growth or change. It slaps a label on them and puts them in a closed box.
While this might briefly make me feel superior it simply reveals my own frustrations and insecurities and closes down the very conversations which are our only hope going forwards.
One thought on “What you resist…”
I wouldn’t worry. Don’t be so hard on yourself. These are crazy times. People join for all sorts of crazy reasons but yes, the ultimate aim is to serve and it will mean picking up arms to fight. Not ideal but it is what it is. I do wish it was different where diplomacy, respect and dialogue were the way instead.
