All good words. Authentic was a pretty essential part of Sixties ideology, but it has slowly morphed into “appear authentic.” So we have things like Fake news that purports to be real news, and opinionated journalism that purports to be unbiased.

Great word for 2019.

Selective is not a word I’ve used per se, but the idea behind it is also central to my way of thinking. To achieve anything great we have to make sacrifices. We can’t do everything, so we must choose, we must be selective. Good word again.

And finally, Non-polarization… I have always used the words Love and Dialogue. Through Dialogue we bridge the gap between our various polarized attitudes. Love incorporates the idea of mercy. Love builds communities. Hate creates destruction…. and breaks my heart to see it so pervasive in oure country today, and our world.

So thanks for the good words. We’ll look forward to more….
