POSITRACTION: Forgive people?



35 Small Acts Of Kindness To Spread Happiness And Flex Your Kindness Muscle
August 23, 2018

*** begin quote ***

As Aesop once said…

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”

*** and ***

4 Forgive people

Everybody makes mistakes. You always forgive yourself no matter how big or small of a mistake you make. Do the same with every person who has done you wrong. It will liberate you.

*** end quote ***

This resonated with me. 

When I was learning to drive, an old Christian Brother told me to pray for forgiveness of MY mistakes. Of course, I told him I was a “perfect driver”.  (No humility here!)  And, he said well then pray for the other drivers who made the mistake of sharing the road with me.  Laugh!

It kinda of stuck with me.  So when I’d see people making a “dumb move”, speeding, or weaving in ’n’ out, I’d say: “I hope they get where they are going safe.”  That’s sort of a prayer.  No?

I liked this list because “no matter how small”!

ENDNOTE: Bill Maher, I agree with Bill Maher?



Bill Maher criticizes social media bans: ‘Alex Jones gets to speak’

*** begin quote ***

HBO talk-show host Bill Maher spoke out in defense of controversial right-wing host Alex Jones after Jones was suspended from several social media platforms, saying that everyone has a right to free speech.

Maher, noting that Jones has "told crazy lies" about him, said on his HBO show Friday that "if you’re a liberal, you’re supposed to be for free speech."

“That’s free speech for the speech you hate. That’s what free speech means. We’re losing the thread of the concepts that are important to this country,” he continued.

“If you care about the real American shit or you don’t. And if you do, it goes for every side. I don’t like Alex Jones, but Alex Jones gets to speak. Everybody gets to speak," Maher said.

Charlie Sykes, a contributing editor for The Weekly Standard, pushed back on Maher’s comments, saying that Jones “doesn’t necessarily get to speak on Facebook or Twitter,” to which the host agreed.

*** end quote ***

While private companies do not have to provide a platform, they do if they want the “common carrier immunity”.

If they are going to have power to censor, then they are responsible for their content.
