Knowledge Without Compassion

There is something we as members of modern society seem to all have a problem showing any kind of understanding of people who are  culturally different from ourselves. Mankind has been in the dark about those who inhabit other parts of the world for hundreds of years. We no longer have that problem but with the power of the internet and social media people can,and do say hurtful things about others that sometimes amounts to bullying electronically,and there is the old reliable standby television. Some people spend hours of their daily lives watching other people air their personal dirty laundry to the whole world.

It would be hard for anyone who was not making money off of all these stories of human failure to have any real feelings about what they are watching. We now have all of mankind’s knowledge at the touch of a glass screen or keyboard. The world is now on a twenty-four schedule which means there is very little time to really think about what the word compassion really means. I truly believe a little compassion will go a long way for those who really think about how to improve their relationships with others,and help build their sense of self respect. It’s something to contemplate. When you have the time.

About serius1058

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
