” In America, justice is administered in the name of the, ‘the good people’ etc. etc.; the sovereignty residing with them.”  1


“The good treatment of their women is the surest evidence that a people can give of their civilization; and there is no nation which has more to boast of, in this respect, than the Americans.”  2


Based on the activity of the Republican Party and their minions, I am not so sure!

It is obvious that our social and political structure in the United States is fractured. Our reliance on tribal vocabulary and communication is restricting the use our brains and critical thinking.  Keeps us from taking note of what is happening and what we are creating or destroying. We like to believe we are intelligent. I am not so sure, at least not as a group, maybe individually.


“Once people join a political team, they get ensnared in its moral matrix. They see confirmation of their grand narrative everywhere, and it’s difficult – perhaps impossible-to convince them they are wrong if you argue with them from outside of their matrix.”1


“Morality binds and blinds. It binds us into ideological teams that fight each other as thought the fate of the world depended on our side winning each battle. It blinds us to the fact that each team is composed of good people who have something important to say.”2


As F. Scott Fitzgerald noted, ” The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.”

“Can’t We All Get Along?” ¹


  • We don’t win every argument
    • We don’t agree on philosophical issues
      • We don’t agree on religious issues
        • We don’t agree on political elections and decisions
          • We don’t agree on facts, actual documented facts not opinions


Does any of this describe current state of affairs in relationships?


Just because we have different opinions should not be the basis for not getting along.

Gender in sports


“People often get confused between the terms sex and gender. Sex refers to biological differences between males and females. Gender refers to the cultural differences expected (by society / culture) of men and women according to their sex. A person’s sex does not change from birth, but their gender can.” [i]

Therefore, there are only 2 biological genders!

What a minute it is more complicated than that! “… Sexual differentiation of the genitals takes place before sexual differentiation of the brain, making it possible that they are not always congruent. …” [ii]

There could be “81 Types Of Genders & Gender Identities” [iii]

If we are no longer willing or able to discriminate on the basis of nature’s biological gender in sport, then common sense dictates that one of two options exist:

  • all competitive sporting events are classified in three common sense ways
    • male only 
    • females only
    • All other only
  • the remaining option is that all competitive sporting events allow all gender identifications to compete in the same event making no differentiation between gender.

Many political, religious and philosophical entities rely on violence, hatred, bullying, and harassment to convince and/or require agreement and/or subjugation.

It is clear evidence of the weakness of their position.

Only weak individuals and believers require this behavior to promote their arguments.

The Media and Discrimination

To address the issue of systemic racism and discrimination of all kinds, we need to start with the media.

Media stories and news continuously describe and identify the person(s) of focus based on religion, cultural background, race, or sexual preference.

The more we promote, describe, and embellish news and stories on some discriminatory basis, the more we sub-consciously promote those differences for malevolent intent.

Why is a person’s race, religion or sexuality important to the purpose at hand?

In reporting on a criminal act, what difference does it make if the alleged is black, white, Jewish, or gay?

It is time to stop promoting all this divisiveness.
