“They say once civility is gone so is the society. I think our side has been trying to hold onto it for a long time. We need to cut our losses and move it to the next stage.”
There seems that the current condition of our society proves that to be essentially true.
Again there seems to be confusion about confronting agression and treating people with respect in our daily activities. There is a difference and I see no indication that rude people have no advantage when the cuttin & shootin starts.
Very true. There's a saying that goes something like; "Be polite, be courteous, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet."
