Racism is not our biggest problem.

It’s a huge problem, but not our biggest.  A lack of humility is our biggest problem as a nation.  Prideful self-righteousness.  The left is intolerant, clear-sighted about the blindness of the right, and right is intolerant, clear-sighted about the blindness of the left.  The opposition is wrong, and I’m right.  That’s our biggest problem.  Polarized nation.  Competitive nation.

The conscience is reached through humility and love.  I don’t care about reaching the conscience of the opposition/competition.  So I only love those who agree with me, and I ridicule the opposition.  And this makes me feel even more self-righteous, intolerant, prideful.  The root of every war in history.

So how do we change?  By trying to change the opposition, or by trying to change myself?  I think both are impossible.  In my experience, only something outside of myself can change me, cause me to be more humble and more loving, and only a changed me has any hope of changing others.  The conscience is reached through humility and love.  Starts with me, not them.
