Don't Be Misled

(Repost, by request)

Bold outbursts and passionate oratory do not establish truth. Chaotic frenzy is not inspiration. Treading upon the sacred altar of another’s beliefs is not evangelism. Words of condemnation are not proof of power. Inciting an uprising is not evidence of leadership.

Who authorized these displays be honored as evidences of a worthy cause? What validates willful abuse of another’s honor, character, belief or property?

Who would follow the tyrant’s noise?

Watch closely, you who would wade into this mighty stream, lest you be misled to think you govern it’s goings. - Laurie De Seguirant
