To Judge or Not to Judge....

I wonder if it will ever be possible for humans to rise above judging each other. I do it. You do it. We all do it. We judge people for what they wear, how they vote, how they pray, who they love, what they say, where they live, the color of their skin, the way they walk, the way they talk...we judge and judge and judge and judge...

This morning I spent far too much time judging people for judging.

Russia, Russia, Russia

“You think we are living in 2016. No, we are living in 1948. And do you know why? Because in 1949, the Soviet Union had its first atomic bomb test. And if until that moment, the Soviet Union was trying to reach agreement with [President Harry] Truman to ban nuclear weapons, and the Americans were not taking us seriously, in 1949 everything changed and they started talking to us on an equal footing.”

Can't We All Just Get Along: The Power of Connection

Some experts believe that humans are hard wired to create tribes and clans. This hard wiring is why people form groups and feel threatened by other groups. This may have been useful when competition for limited resources meant survival, but it's proven less so now that there is access to all that we need if not the impetus to provide it. The illusion of 'the other' is powerful, because it's primal. This makes it challenging in our modern age. It makes it difficult for people to see themselves as part of the human race first and foremost. It makes war, violence, racism, sexism, homophobia, and Xenophobia so prevalent and powerful. It makes peace, love, and understanding so difficult to achieve.
