The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly - 10/18/19
The ongoing saga…
The Great – As I travel abroad, it is clear that the people of the world still like – in general – Americans even while they are increasingly disgusted by our government on both sides of the aisle.
The Good – Traveling abroad and not having access to any of the news stations! Oh what a relief it is!!
The Bad – The divisions that have evolved in our nation with everyone moving to their respective corners and – rather than listening – they are inserting ear plugs. Listening to hollow echoes by talking with ourselves or others who parrot our perspectives will never solve problems.
The Ugly – Twitter is increasingly used as a tool to disparage and denigrate – two approaches that are not long-term effective strategies for leaders of any political perspective – and, I’ve seen it used on both sides of aisle unfortunately. For many years, I’ve said (ask those who work with me): “Email, and tools like it, are useful for sharing information and horrible at creating dialogue and solving problems.” Our leaders – across the spectrum – need to learn that adage.
