Cryptoquote Spoiler – 03/08/21

George Santayana (profile) - George Biddle | FAMSF Search the Collections

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
