Sweet Irony

After following an ever more tenuous chain of links, I ran across a multi-screen screed of character destruction, only to find the sweet irony of this signature: ‘”If you judge people, you have no time to love them.” – Mother Teresa’

I’m often surprised that humanity has survived as long as it has. Viewed through the edge-enhancing lens of the Internet, you’d think that the members of the various irreconcilably different tribes would have long ago taken up arms and slaughtered each other over their infinite number of trivially minor differences — let alone the significant, morally relevant differences (for some randomly selected values of moral and relevant).

Yeah, I wimped out and didn’t provide a link, because I didn’t want to get involved. I’ll just say it wasn’t about race, religion, national origin, operating system, text editor, ….
