There's a place for all in society. Even those who perfer to ignore the suffering of others. Selfishness is a state of growth. Ignorance is a disadvantage to growth. BE KIND TO THE IGNORANT

I find the way you express yourself is sometimes difficult to understand and know precisely the point you are making.

Of course we should be kind to the ignorant, the selfish, the clever and not so clever, those who's opinions we do not agree with as well as those with similar thought. We should not create artifical divisions between ourselves and others whether by politics, wealth or social preferences so perhaps you should just say BE KIND TO EVERYONE

I believe we are all equal and hate the artificial devisions put up to make us appear superior to others.

Good point NEROS. Indeed we should be KIND TO EVERYONE
But how do we avoid reacting to people who support selfishness and cruelty to the less privileged? Even though they are just parroting ideological views. I struggle with returning kindness to selfishness. Without challenging the indoctrinated views, then what you allow will continue.

fosy , It seems there are so many people like you on this site who absolutely take a delight in rubbishing everything they say, just because they say something important, informative, and interesting.

If all that's in your mind is the smallest of small talk, then go somewhere else on this form and talk about the weather and such like.

I think its sad when anybody raises any worthwhile issue, only to be called a troll by anybody else, dont you ?

Michael. Haven't you just rubbished fosy's post? Live and let live. He is entitled to his opinion as we all are. The trolls have become a real nuisance driving others away from the forum so it is no suprise that others are angry at times. I'm not accusing anyone of being a troll but defending the principle of free speech.
