"If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all."
Humans. Love them or hate them, they are all around us. In fact, humans make everything possible. But first there was a fellow named God who creatively designed everything -- giving us the resources to produce material objects. Humanity, I'd say, has abused what God has given us.
Abortion clinics are being disguised under the name "Planned Parenthood": a sugarcoated cover-up of Hitler-esque destruction.
Stem-cell research has gone too far as doctors and big time medical researchers want to make a name for themselves albeit in a malicious fashion. Homos are weening their way down city squares pledging for a type of equality that was never meant to be; homo-marriage. China is still Commie.
Marijuana possession is a criminal offense in America. Freedom is synonymous with killing. Metro Station is more popular than Animal Collective.
You see, humanity fails. Humans are naturally flawed and if the modern age isn't enough to prove that conjecture than I simply don't know what is. Should we lose faith in humanity though? We need to educate our neighbors and teach them the way, the truth, and the life (religiously and socially). We don't need a totalitarian based political system to accomplish this...no we don't..but what we do need is cooperation and vision. Hate -- which is far too prevalent to break down into systemic groupings -- isn't about not tolerating others. It is about working together to achieve a common goal. Once people get off of their cultural or economic high horses, humanity will be able to come together. Once money becomes as insignificant as a piece of wood, humanity will be able to come together.
