Most times, I have to think about things before I respond. I wonder if people who say that something is horrible, and must be punished — such as illegal immigration (including children raised here), homosexuality, abortion, news bias or other topics — generally want that thing stopped, but don't offer alternatives when they write letters to the editor?
When we sit in moral outrage but don't offer workable alternatives to help change the behaviors questioned, we are sitting in judgment. I think that that has been written about in various religions and philosophies as not being helpful to anyone. In my experience, talking, listening and sharing ideas allow us to come up with new solutions to try.
None of us has all the answers, and we need to share helpfully to learn from each other's experiences and points of view.
