8. Some times when we have very strong convictions we think we can justify our

 

actions to get others to agree with us. But if we reflect that our convictions mean nothing if we don't heed our principles. I have learned a lot here. How many times have I seen other posters ridicule or mock someone and get upset myself only to realize that I also have a tendency to do the same. Of course I can rationalize that they are bad and "deserve it" which, I realize is exactly what they think. That reminds me, I should have said some thing in my OP about "they deserve it". The bullies favorite phrase. "I was picking on them because they are racist and I am sure, therefore they deserve the ridicule and mockery". Every mob that took someone out to be burned at the stake rationalized that the victim "deserved it."

Progressives rock.
