When did we become such haters?

Every time I am on social media or watching the news, I see/hear yet another story of people hating on other people.  This person is bad because they drove too fast down my street, that person is wrong because they park in front of my house.  Don't go in my bathroom if you aren't really a girl.  I am a better parent than you because I don't (pick one) feed them crap, ever let them out of my sight, allow them to ever misbehave at home or in public.  I call bullshit on all of us.

I got news for you folks, we are NOT perfect.  Not one single person on this planet is perfect.

We spend so much time worrying about situations and things that have never happened to us and probably never will.  We condemn those that are different from us for not being the same.  Hatred, prejudice and anger are flowing wild.  How did we get here? 

We want the government to leave us alone, then we want them to make stricter laws against anything we believe is wrong.  You can't have it both ways. 

What happened to love thy neighbor as thyself?  Do we really hate ourselves so we have to spend time unleashing those feelings on others in hopes that we would feel better?  Then there's the Golden Rule - do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  Do you want your neighbors, friends, peers, family members to treat you like you are treating others?  God forbid you ever make a mistake or do something that someone else doesn't like because these same people that are hating with you, will now be hating against you. 

Let's grab the pitchforks and the torches.  String them up from the nearest tree.  Behaviors that should be far behind us now that we are a "civilized nation" are now brewing back up in full force.  Where does it end?  Who has to die to satisfy our sense of wrong or injustice?

  1. *sigh* Well said. I often think this way at work. I think "I really should say something about this carrier"... and then I inevitably forget something or drop the ball and think if I had said something THAT would be my karma.

    None of us is perfect... no matter how often we think we might be.
