There is no lecture involved, of any kind. You made the choice, by the statement in your own words and hand. I simply commented on the trend it joins
across society as a whole.
Right to the very top of leadership of both political and business, integrity (or the ability to maintain the right thing, even when it's wrong for
personal benefits and outcomes) is something almost unseen and unheard of these days. The very concept is ridiculed and made light of...by those in
society who have no true concept of what it means to live, in experience.
Take, as the thread is actually about, this girl at the public school. I don't think less of her....She knew only what she'd been taught at that age.
She had only the integrity she's been raised to believe is important or meaningful to forming a good person. In other words..in this day and age? She
can not be faulted for how completely average her response was. (Better hurry tho...no one is that tolerant when she hits 18)
It's the people in authority above her which were totally and absolutely bankrupt in integrity. They got butt hurt over comments about a teacher's
aid, so, in the best traditions of our modern times, they tossed principle out the school window and ignored everything about individual rights ...and
unlike the girl, they don't get an ignorance pass. They DO know better.
So what is it which makes one adult say NO while another says "but but but..we HAVE TO!"? That little inner compass that says...personal benefit is
fleeting, while the ability to look in a mirror without disgust is a life long condition.
The people this girl had intimidate her into violating her own rights? They would be the embodiment of our lack of values or even a sense of purpose
..over the expediency of pursuing whatever feels good at the moment.
