Some Ideas are Bad for People
"Ideas over People" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
I love ideas.
I love people.
I don't love ideas that hurt people.
I don't love that some people love ideas that hurt people.
I don't love that some people will hurt people because of ideas.
The best thinkers come up with ideas that benefit all, not just some.
The worst thinkers come up with ideas that benefit some, not all.
I think healthy community all boils down to this struggle:
How can we all be free without violating the freedom of each other?
If this struggle is not at the root of an idea then the idea must be abandoned.
