Thinking about communities and cooperation this morning. Why is it we live in a society that is hell bent on convincing us to judge and separate ourselves from others. The drop off at my kids school is a perfect example.
You've got the PJ moms talking crap about the glamour moms and vice versa. They're all struggling,every single one and could probably help one another immensely but they're so caught up in the "us vs them" mindset that they don't see it.
You see it everywhere. Black vs white, Hispanic vs Hispanic(this one really mystifies me. I know we all come from different places but our goals are the same) men vs women,parents vs child free. Atheist vs theist
All these imaginary lines drawn and heavily defended when accepting people and working together would make things so much better for everyone.
