I have just finished watching on TV the Chicago Police Department responding to the Jussie Smollett case. According to evidence uncovered by the Chicago Police, Jussie Smollett a black actor and celebrity, staged a racial attack on himself, thinking it would help him in salary negotiations for his acting role. Social media, Main Street News and politicians aided him in his victimhood by trumpeting preconceived ideas and by using minimum critical thinking in their dissemination of news.
Their have been countless issues in 2019 where many people have jumped to conclusions based on their ideology instead of waiting for facts.
Peaceful street protests are usurped by violent parts of society with an agenda on both the left and right.
The middle class is eroding and the divide between have and have nots is increasing leading to greater anger and social pressures.
We have to get a grip, be more rational in our thoughts, be more responsible on social media and not follow the mob mentality.
I think the above seven social sins formulated by reverend Frederick Donaldson and adopted by Gandhi are just as relevant today as in 1925.
Politics with principles.
Commerce with morality.
Science with humanity.
This is my little rant in response to watching todays news.
