the path of the sage must become the path of the hero

I love labels…REALLY???

Kenneth writes passionately about a subject I have touched on: labels and the dichotomies they exist in (us vs. them, etc.) As my Sifu-of-Sorts said to me, why cannot people accept people as unique individuals? That is, can we simply just embrace the wholeness in a person, rather than trying to pick out what seems to fit our paradigm/worldview?

~”Oh, so you’re one of those

Ever hear that before? In the Western World we love to label people;

—) ‘You’re a conservative’

—) ‘You’re a liberal’

—) ‘You’re an atheist’

—) ‘You’re a fill-in-the-blank’

Is it just me or does it seem that more often than not people have a tendency to mislabeleach other. If someone finds out that you don’t completely agree with them on a particular issue then they have the propensity of labeling you as the ‘enemy’.

The blogging world is no different than any other facet of life. When people find out that you don’t ‘preach the party line’ then they immediately go on the attack because surely you must be against them if you don’t 100% agree with them….right???

Yet the simple fact of the matter is that there is no perfect ideology, no perfect religion, and no perfect political philosophy…

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me. The username is still unique as of 2016, so it's just me, and only me. It's the real me, because I'm bad at faking otherwise.
