Public discourse on politically contested matters—like climate change, refugees, distribution of resources, etc.—seems to be at a low ebb.

Because, having watched as, at least those in the West, have turned away from the principles offered by the Ten Commandments and instead adopted the principles of The Seven Deadly Sins (with great enthusiasm I might add) we seem to be losing our humanity. Social justice is fading away and social depression and hopelessness is its replacement. Why does it matter to me? I guess because I actually care about people and it makes me angry and sad to see us destroying, not just the planet, but ourselves. I guess it’s the “no man is an Island…” and “Do unto others” Once we forget those, what do we become – non humans? Who says “history never repeats” they were nuts !
