I've noticed a disturbing trend, especially in the younger generation. We insist that nobody is wrong, that we are not entitled to judge, that you can't say you're more right than another.
And I say bologna.
First, though, let me back up to clarify a few things.
In some cases, it actually is wrong to judge. When it comes to personal emotion, another's life decisions, pursuits, psychological issues, personal preferences and experiences, then you have no right to either think or tell someone else that they are incorrect in what they do. You can say 'Hey, I personally wouldn't pay 200 dollars for a piece of jewelry like that, but whatever, it's their choice.'
What I do take issue with, though, is the tendency of kids nowadays to refuse to call themselves right. They will take a position, be it religious or political or simply a position on who they think should be class president, and they will give this position no value. Come on people, if you believe something, believe it all the way! Be prepared to stand up for your position. Don't be afraid to say "I think I am right." I want you, with your beliefs, to come up to me and tell me I'm wrong. Put a stake in the issues you feel passionate about. Research what you know, look at every option, and then decide what you think carries the most evidence to support it.
Believe things only with good reason to believe it. And once you believe it, stop saying "Well, you believe what you want to and I'll believe what I want to, no one belief is better than another." You know what this tells me? That you have no good idea what you think of the world, and that most likely all your ideas are completely worthless.
So I want you to tell me I'm wrong. Come up to me and challenge me on what I think. And then maybe, just maybe, we'll be able to learn something from each other.
