Anger and Aggression – American Psychological Association
I give you some examples:
- Facebook – How many time, have you received a post of someone in dire stress (a child sick, an animal injured, or a personal quote) to be instructed if you do not reply to the post evil, horrible things will come your way.
- Twitter – You have also seen them there as well. What really strike me odd, when other twitter followers go after each others in an angry, hurtful, negative way.
- Bloggers- Is okay, to express your opinion. It’s okay to say, I do not like or enjoy this. Follow it with a valid reason why and encourage your readers to leave their opinions as well. Agree to disagree. What is not okay to report your one-sided view and state it as news.It is not news, it called an editorial.
What really concern me is the hatred we have for one another. I really truly understand we can not like everything. We are all different. That is the way we were made. When I took Logic in college, the first thing I learned was to differentiate between an opinion, a fact, and a hasty generalization.
In my opinion, I believe that is how the world sees itself. The world like to hastily generalize everything it sees. If you are not in agreement with an action, you have a problem. You are ignorant, and if you get offended you react with anger instead of finding a hospitable solution to the situation at hand.
There is too much hate in this world. Everyone hates everyone. No want to understand or see the other person point of view. No one wants to validate the reason. Everyone wants to be right and nobody wants to be wrong.
Everyone wants to be called an “American”, but no one knows what the real meaning of being an American is. And let me give you a hint, it has nothing to do, with the colored of your skin, your religious belief, the political party you are affiliated with.
Being an American, it’s accepting change, diversity, freedom from opposition. Is unity, compassion, equal representation, is the knowledge of acceptance we are the people, we are one nation, we are all American. No one is less or superior to anybody. This is a great melting pot of people of different cultures, sharing, embracing their knowledge for the greater good of humanity.
“Sorry, If I offended anyone today. I was just exercising my right of freedom of speech.”
The Poor American
