My commentary today is very simple, really and it matches up directly with the title. We can't honestly find fault with one political viewpoint and even individual without closely looking at the other side as well. We can believe what we want, but when we single out one and ignore the other, the truth eludes us. Not only that, but the longer we do that the more likely we become dogmatic in our views and close our eyes to everything else.
Now, I have my personal views, they are strongly held and they have been developed and refined over many years. I didn't get them from professors, although it's natural that some good information was provided, but I tried to take the time to read both sides, to talk with people on both sides and thereby use my own head to discern what is true and correct. We can't do that when we scream at others and refuse to let them speak. What is required is listening, discussing and keeping the volume down and remaining peaceful. It's not always easy, but it works if we give it a chance. And if we don't, well, we'll just continue to mire in ours muck while thinking we have the answers to everything when deep down inside we know we don't.
There was only one perfect person on this earth and he died two thousand years ago. The rest of us are just poor souls trying to find our way. And if we don't look closely and use our God-given talents as they were intended, we'll never find it.
Notice I didn't mention any party, any particular ideology, or disparage anyone, I just told the truth. And the only way we can find it is by breaking the chains of political correctness. Political correctness is anathema to truth. Just look at what goes on in the political world and that's very easy to discern.
So, that's it, the end of my political discourses and commentaries for 2017. Now we move to lighter, more positive things as we open the most wonderful time of the year. Enjoy, be at peace, and I hope you'll keep reading my blog right here on North Florida Writer.
