We have an Ask Egberto Anything on the first Saturday of every month. A PDR Posse member, Tom C made a message observation we must heed.
It is all about a message that connect us all
Tom C described the silos that groups in America are becoming.
“Our country is becoming so polarized, Tom said. “And so disunited.”
He laments the false freedom many are convulsing about. He laments the “Don’t bother me with your problem” attitude. Unfortunately too few understand that one person’s problem today could easily be the other’s tomorrow.”
“I was making notes today,” Tom said. “Just thinking about it’s just too bad that we have this attitude in our country that, you know, freedom is everything. Or for a lot of people, it’s like, don’t bother me with your problems. You know, it is, you know, just solve your own problems. Be on your own. Be an individual. Be a man or whatever. You know, it’s like it is sad.”
Tom then expanded on the statement I made about hue, race.
“You know what the problem is?” Tom said. “I was thinking of this too the hue, man, you know you talk about hue, man, so hue is part of our as part of who we are. We always judge by appearances which is sad but what really is the color problem today? I think it is green. Well green for money and also green for nature. So we’ve got these two, the two greens involved here. We help nature. Should we help you now? Should we just be concerned about ourselves and go for money?”
Tom C then ends with the most prescient statement.
“They [many Republicans] have this cultural mindset that this is the group I’m in,” Tom said. “And I want to identify with you now, the people here. And they don’t see themselves as part of a bigger culture and part of a problem that needs to be resolved. So it’s that’s one of the things that Democrats have to work on and try to appeal to, the poor people of rural America and the people that are left out in the working class. We have to broaden that whole movement so that everybody feels connected.”
