Rationalize, Justify, Minimize ( December 12, 2017)
When it comes to preserving this false sense of entitlement and superiority, we sacrifice our moral compass. It’s impossible to be “good people” and protect the system of injustice so we have to justify every wrong deed or ideology. We have to rationalize why something so horrific can be easily glossed over and thus we minimize the abuse, offense, murder etc to say “it’s not that big of a deal”. We silence the victims and their families. We Villainize the movement championing for them, and we legalize the power to exploit and abuse the people. Shame is taking out of the equation and the perpetrators are brought into leadership as heroes. What a shame.
