COMMENT | If we don't talk about our hurt, rage will consume us

“When we are hurting, we speak past each other and allow ourselves to be exploited by merchants of rage.”

COMMENT | We don’t talk about sensitive issues. At least not in a way that is even remotely productive. Some would say peace and stability are preserved because we skirted around those sensitive issues, rather than confronting them head-on.

This is because our society is too fragmented - ethnically, religiously, linguistically - to have productive disagreements and everyone is only going to be dragged into trench warfare: gaining not an inch of land but accumulating bodies of sacrifice.
