Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/08/21

Intolerance is a form of egotism, and to condemn egotism intolerantly is to share it.”   —   George Santayana

(I should share this quote with a good friend of mine.  We both share the same political/societal ideology, except that he seems to have ZERO tolerance for others’ intolerance.  He also does not see the problems of “political correctness” and “cancel culture”.  I see both of these issues – although they’re kind of one and the same – as the leading cause of today’s extremism and ideological polarization.  Regardless of whom/where this quote originated, I feel we all have to get back to “I disagree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”.  We have to have a certain level of acceptance of other people’s thinking.  It’s called being civil.  Can we even have a civilization without civility?  When we insist on fighting fire with fire, we risk burning the entire thing down.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Another thoughtful quote from the serious philosopher who gave us “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” and “Only the dead have seen the end of war.” A shame he is mostly remembered for his aphorisms.
