it’s not me

Sometimes, we believe we are invincible and righteous at the same time. We step on other human beings in order to stand tall.

Our economy is fueled by inequity. We become the oppressed and bullies and are rewarded by meager paychecks.

By looking away and walking away, saying that it’s not me, that I don’t do it, we protect our loved ones and our lives in make-believe safety and remain outsiders.

  1. You describe the current reality as it is. There is inequity in our economy and in culture. There is an operating belief that some people are more valuable than others, which is abominable but common. The reaction you describe, withdrawal from harmful attitudes and practices, is both difficult and risky. But until there is a clarion call for universal respect, protecting our loved ones, as you say, is the better way we have.
