Political Cartoon: “Anti” By Kaveh Adel Iranian American Cartoonist
Why are we Anti this and Anti that?
We wear armors and helmets to protect ourselves from harm.
What if we induce harm by rejecting common sense?
What if we continue to perpetuate thoughts and paradigms that are based in fear cultivated by those who are less informed and even worse, have an agenda?
Survival instinct is in humanity, yet our minds can serve as imaginative sources of hate and prejudice looking to blame someone, something or anything to explain what happens to us. The mind can blind us to the most common sense idea that we love to live, but analysis paralysis will kill us and those around us.
The common sense protects us against disease, helps us respect others with different points of view or traditions, choose friendship over conflict and even worse murder. Our common sense also allows us to question things… yes, the safety of our foods and medicines yet we can get bogged down in misinformation where we choose incorrectly, undermining our own and others survival!
We have vaccines for Measles and many more diseases. We also have amazing ways to educate ourselves and questions hateful methods of living with our fellow human beings. The disease we need to fight is our acceptance of misinformation. I wished there was a vaccine for that.
Love and peace,
