The Roots of Violence: Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Knowledge without character, Commerce without morality, Science without humanity, Worship without sacrifice, Politics without principles.

- Mahatma Gandhi

Argue!

The holiday season brings about greater family interaction, which can be good and not so good. First and foremost, one cannot forget that though they are family, they are mere human beings. Something to remember:

Calling someone you do not agree with sexist, racist, bigoted, stupid, ass and any other insult you can conjure is not an argument! If you disagree, argue the facts, the ideas, the principals, but if you cannot do that, SHUT UP! Insults are simply escape clauses, declaratives that you are unable to form a point, a reasoned, sound argument. Go down fighting, with an argument, not an insult. And at this point, we, the insulted, have become fairly impervious to your insulting barbs, but if that is the best you have... We win again!

Yes, it is not fair that some of us are smarter than others, but that is something you will have to take up with whomever you deem the creator. Though you could throw an insult their way, which would be much easier and may be the limit of your capability.
