Passion and Blame
Some people seem to get passion and blame mixed up.
For instance, it is very possible to say "I really care about this issue and this is what I am choosing to do about it" and leaving out "If you don't do what I do, you're an idiot."
In fact, if you're trying to convince anyone else of your point, this will have the direct opposite effect.
You will drive others away while simultaneously breeding contempt within your group. As people move away from your group, you will feel less connected and you will begin to objectify them
Once you lose your sense of another person or group's humanity, it opens you up to just about anything.
This is how riots and wars start.
It all begins with this fundamental principle of learning how to honor your passion while also holding love for others.
Be the change.
