Are You a Decent Human Being? Most Aren’t and Here’s Why!

(Before It's News)

If you get unjustly beat up, that means the attacker is bad, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you are good. Being the victim of oppression doesn’t automatically make any individual, or any group, automatically noble and virtuous. Bad people can be wrongfully injured too, and they don’t like it either. A lot of people being mistreated today would, if given the chance, be mistreating others tomorrow. The sign of being a decent human being is not whether you are being abused; it’s whether, given the opportunity, you would refrain from abusing others.

For example, in this country’s history different minority groups—blacks, homosexuals, American Indians, etc.—have been brutalized. But all those groups are still just made up of mere mortal people, and many of the individuals in those groups would be just as quick to mistreat others if the power was in their hands. If you doubt this, watch any political campaign. When the Democrats are in power, the Republicans rightly complain about being forced to comply with a leftist agenda. But the moment the Republicans are in power, the tables turn, and then the Democrats rightly complain about being forced to comply with a right-wing agenda.

  • This is nothing but an anti-Semitic hit piece to blame Israel for the world’s ill and you are, ironically practicing what you say they do. Grrrrr…..

    And has Netanyahu said, if we lay down our arm we will be instantly killed, if they lay down their arms there would be peace. So where is the love from the other side?

    And a nutta thing. Many people misinterpret the “do unto others have they would have do unto to you”.

    Now a famous philosopher tried to get smart-ass about by saying don’t do that! Their “taste may not be the same”. Well, if you do that you are NOT practicing it. Being only concerned about YOUR taste. Duhhhh…. :twisted:
