The Mosquito Effect

Many of us impart our views upon the world believing they are gonna hit with the force of mass extinctive astroid impacts.

More often than not they barely delivers the severity of a mosquito flying about while one tries to sleep.

Which is a good thing.

World views should at worst just briefly keep others up at night. It shouldn’t be something that envelops masses of the world in fear for their lives.

We still have a lot to learn when it comes to communicating humanely at the scale of a connected mankind.

One thing that we have yet to understand is the freedom we fuel evil every time we proclaim another human being to be a monster.

Call someone a monster enough times and sure enough the evil within anyone of us will find a breeding ground to roam more viciously and corrupt the growth of benign ideas.
