Dignity as the Price of Peace…

No one needs flattery. Everyone needs dignity. Because ego is the most modern of diseases, we all full of our selves and branded shamelessly for public consumption, personalities paid for their pin-ups and post-ups in likes, follows and shares, presumably to make up in brownie points (does anyone still say that?) what we lack in proper remuneration for our hard-earned bread and soup. But dignity comes with proper recognition if not proper remuneration, a dollar’s work for a dollar’s pay, and credits attributed accordingly, so that we can all feel good about what it is that we do and what it is that we struggle for. And that is not always easy. But it is never worth venting spleen at the robber barons and Internet trolls, with hatred and anger and vengeance running over. It is more important to correct the problem than to seek revenge, getting even just that and no more, because if we stoop to their level of hatred and anger, then they win, and we will never attain the peace of mind and dignity of place that we deserve…
