    Thanks for this post, @Paul Frank Gilbert. I was recently confronted with a very public expression of intolerance and was torn as to whether I should write about it.

    "Tolerance requires wisdom, experience and the achievement of a personal level of growth that many of us may never quite achieve." I believe that open discussion is how we learn to be tolerant, so I am going to have to write about a very difficult topic.

    This is a good discussion surrounding the words Tolernence and Diversity. Jion.
    Harvey Lloyd
    07/12/2016 #5 Harvey Lloyd
    Diversity for me anyway is the understanding and use of different viewpoints. Naturally, this may point to different points of view from different cultures or religions. This is diversity. Diversity is not, in my view, accepting or rejecting an opinion, skill or view because someone is of a different culture, religion.

    Diversity and the tolerance concept have all taken on new meaning in our very group-think society. Diversity is a good thing when leaders listen, empathise and explore the various perspectives of unique individuals. Also they succeed through viewing another's position regardless of their metaphors, dress or passion (Tolerance). Both of these statements imply direction/change or a goal. Ultimately a decision will be made of the various explorative processes. Am i intolerant or lack diversity based on the chosen direction?

    Tolerance should be temporary just as intolerance. Intolerance in action is tolerance that has exceeded its life expectancy. Either i am seeking to understand why i am tolerating something (accepting the experience) or seeking resolution through our systems of determination.

    I don't want to pursue tolerance, i experience it. I certainly don't want to pursue hate. Although i experience that on occasion, i know through my belief system where that ends. No hate should be supported by society. Ideas and differences or diversity, under my stated definition, should be pursued.

    In the end, we have to accept the rule of law. This is something that i believe is/was a large part of the election processes demonstration, expectation not tolerance/intolerance. Although this is playing out under the new definitions of the words being used here. They are accusatory and represent a fait accompli debating style. How does one answer the accusation of intolerance when discussing the outcome of the election; religous orientation, or skin color?

    I can't and most likely won't. If forced to, most would not like my answer.

    #3 I agree ... circular for sure. I guess I am just saying that we talk a lot these days about diversity (of thought, race, gender, etc.) and we talk about acceptance ... but all too often we only support those things if they fit with how we see them. The definition (at least currently) of tolerance and intolerance is clear and as such ... perhaps we are not really searching for it ... perhaps we are not really looking to create a tolerant society after all ... instead maybe we can agree there are going to be things that we vehemently oppose no matter how "legal" they are. I see no reason to tolerate smokers ... and I am sure my non-vegetarian lifestyle in absolutely intolerable to some. So maybe we quit pretending to be pursuing tolerance as a goal and quit fighting basic human nature. Maybe HATE is a useful emotion ... in the right circumstances ... as supported by society? :)
    Harvey Lloyd
    07/12/2016 #3 Harvey Lloyd
    #2 I agree, i was merely stating that the words have grown in definition to apathetic levels. Someone else's belief system of the mirid of them that exist, is personal to them. It is only when their belief system states and they act upon it in such a way that robs me of my own belief system, that intolerance exists. But under your discussion this is covered by applicable law.

    "Assigning yourself to a group, I believe, immediately sets you up for a greater risk of being ... intolerant. Sneaky. Philosophical perhaps...."

    Given the constitution not being an all-inclusive document but rather a document that assumes basic humanist expectations; and one of the reasons for settling the colonies was the freedom to practice religion, where do we go from here? Have we not then taken a few hundred years to evolve into exactly why we left merry ole England?

    Your argument here seems circular. The society we discuss has to establish specific guidelines for us to act within. Anarchy is the end game when we refuse to act upon the forces that threaten our social future. Our constitution establishes a methodology of challenge/defend to sort out these issues. Because i challenge something doesn't make me intolerant. What makes me intolerant is when i don't accept the processes outcome.

    I believe your statements surround judgement of another through intolerance. This judgement leading to unacceptable action. I agree. Judgement is for the dogma crowd of group think. Someone who is tolerant or intolerant also need to be heard and have thier say within the process. But once decided move on.

    #1 Societies, not the human race as a whole, determine what is and is not tolerable and societies makes laws and set punishments for those things that fall outside their limits. Our history is littered with society based laws that were once enforced but no longer are and we look back in horror at what we tolerated or what we refused to tolerate. Tolerance must accept that the ideas, opinions and beliefs of others have a much right to exist as yours ... until such time as we as a society decide to enact laws and set punishments against them. We need to be careful because as much as I/we might like to never again see someone draw a representation of the prophet Muhammad, because it goes against the beliefs of millions of people, I/we have to weigh that against the freedoms to do so, and the implications of impacting those freedoms. Am I tolerant for allowing people to draw those images? Intolerant for not creating laws to stop it?Anyway ... again, intolerance is when you do not believe that ideas and beliefs that do not fit your version of the world should be allowed to exist or take form in any manner. If they are not backed by laws the chance that your views are merely intolerant increase. Assigning yourself to a group, I believe, immediately sets you up for a greater risk of being ... intolerant. Sneaky. Philosophical perhaps ... but at a basic level, at least here in the US, we have governance that dictates what is and is not against the law and until something is ... refusal to even accept and acknowledge that someone else can have an idea or belief that does not agree with yours ... is simply Intolerant.
    Harvey Lloyd
    07/12/2016 #1 Harvey Lloyd
    Tolerance i have always thought was the direct result of not understanding something we are experiencing and seeking to understand. Intolerance is the exact opposite, to stop/intervene that which we don't understand.

    Tolerance and intolerance have a common theme, action. Both situations require resolution in our mind or in our actions depending on how far along we might be in the discerning process. Both seem to lead down a road to apathy at some point when they are left unresolved. Yes tolerance has limits. These limits are individual to a point but socially/collectively there are limits also.

    I did not tolerate President Obama, I had expectations. Some of these were met and some were not. It would have been no different with a Hilary victory. I have expectations of President-elect Trump.

    The tolerance word and its flip side have been utilised to the point that they tend to describe an individual and who they are in the human experience. If someone states they are Christian, they are intolerant if they are part of a special interest group then they are tolerant etc......

    This divides us as a human race into categories of belief, personalities and other labels. I agree with the intent of your post, but would submit we need to set clear expectations on our society and its leaders and hold them to it. Please let's not tolerate anyone. Let's seek to find common ground that all can thrive.

Funny how our government talks about diversity, tolerance and inclusion then actively drives us to go after each other, preying on the weakness of people to use hate, racism, bigotry etc. to fight each other .. to divide us. History has plenty of examples ... but all you need to do is look at our political campaigns over the last 100 years to see it ... over and over and over again .. and WE THE PEOPLE ... follow the plan over and over and over again.

    #1 Under our common sense interpretation is a mental case, a nut. Still we have to be careful with what we throw in the market or universe, as we don't know who specifically will react and which way to those environmental stimuli. Some people are more propense than others. In his axiological framework, this nut believed the contents of the fake news and wanted to do something about it. May be in his heart he was doing the right thing, with the information and values he has,but, in more absolute terms under what is the law and the level of truth in the content, not. Political rhetoric of hate, racism,bigotry, xenophobia, mixed with ignorance, craziness and lunacy, can produce very bad results. History is plenty of examples.

    Imagine a world where those with mental issues were taken care of. This is another example of a person, walking freely in our society, that needs help. You can blame whatever and whoever you want but the real issue is mental health ... and the lack of any plan to deal with it. If not a mental health issue, this is another example of a person who has given up responsibility for understanding the real world and has placed their lives in the hands of others ... still a mental health issue in my opinion.

    Choice. The idea is to reduce taxes on businesses (15%) to a mark more in line with the rest of the world. Then if you still want to move ... great ... move, but you will find it hard to sell your product here both based on taxes to your incoming products and because people, aware that your tax rates have been lowered to globally equal levels and that you still choose to move your business and jobs out of the country so you can continue to boost your bottom line ... will simply not buy your product anyway. The world is changing ... adapt of fail.

    #8 Absolutely support the changing of the Constitution to reflect a changing society. Who wants to live in the past, guided by words and ideals that no longer fit the realities of the world we live in today? So lets change things ... let's modernize things. Let's get busy taking responsibility for those changes. Hopefully this was a wake up call and we will quit letting parties divide us, quit letting politicians run the country and work together to change our situation. So yes ... lets get together ... a quit being a bunch of closed minded people who are sure it can only be our way and do what rational human beings do ... communicate with each other without calling each other names, communicate with each other without judging and actually try to be tolerant (ability to accept that people are not like you and that your views, ideas and behaviours are not the only acceptable ones) human beings. As usual politics displays zero tolerance and all the parties and candidates excelled at intolerance and deliberately divisive rhetoric. Until we stop pandering to this approach ... we can expect nothing different.

The hateful rhetoric of mr Trump, along with some technicalities gave him the presidency, even if the majority of people didn't vote for him, as they do not share the values in the meme, nor were fooled or conned. Our Constitution, one of the most important documents ever in the human history, has been amended over 20 times, to reflect changing times (in example, now women can vote). Most of the constitutionalists whatever is that, tend to interpret it as fit to their values and sometimes quite literaly, even if the framers had the intention of being a flexible instrument that can adapt with time.

We were able to do that because we were not afraid of the reality that one of the two primary candidates was going to win and were not manipulated into voting out of fear ... and instead voted our conscious ... voted to Support and Defend the Constitution of the United States ... not a party, not a process ...

    Yes. In four years there will be another election and you can believe that right now millions and millions (if not Billions) of dollars are being made ready/used to dictate the winner of that election. The political parties are now aware that they are at risk and will do whatever it takes to ensure THEY win next time. Until we see term limits, until we see spending caps, until we stop spending 2 plus years campaigning ... we will continue to allow ourselves to be run by our government instead of the government being run by the people. So you go right ahead and focus on the political parties, focus on not getting anything done because your party did not win ... the cycle will never end ... which is exactly what the party leaders want. We need them. We need to be led by them. Meanwhile they all receive the same great salaries, the same outstanding benefits .... because in reality they are one big club ... but they need us to see them as pitched in a battle for US! Please. Are we so easily manipulated, so easily led? Clearly many of us are. The government is supposed to do 1 thing and 1 thing only ... Support and Defend the Constitution of the United States ... everything else is a waste of our taxes .... and an affront to the ideals this country was founded on. Wake up .. or not. Those of us who are awake, are aware and have long since stopped being manipulated ... we no longer depend on the local and federal government to protect us, to ensure there are rules for every aspect of our lives. We are Constitutionalists ... we are not haters, but we take full responsibility for knowing the truth and for who we trust, we are not afraid and neither use nor are manipulated by fear, we are all races with equal value, we are men and women with equal strengths, we see no value in judging people by any manner other than whether or not they contribute meaningfully to society, we value trust, responsibility and accountability, honor and ethics.

    It is Economic Idiocy and complete Ignorance of how Insurance works. The government, specfically the IRS, has no business being in the market channel. I would support the full repeal of Medicare and Medicaid too, but Amerika has too long sucked fron that Socialist teet to ever let its' grip go. Obamacare was written on the exact same logic as Lenin's Land for Peasants scheme of the Red Soviet - and look how that played out.

    #2 The original idea was to provide a government option, which would have keep a better competitive environment but, in a meeting with the Insurance lobby and the GOP leadership (memorandum 2009) Obama bent and left out the option, the insurers forces the mandate as an actuarial way to keep the risk low. The best is to have something like in Europe, everyone have access to health and private insurance and both side co manage it taping in their efficiency, This is the only developed country still without the health issue solved.

    And as the threats morph, so too must our own defenses. Welcoming spaces can no longer be unguarded ones.

    The Ohio Statehouse and government buildings on Capitol Square have received much-needed upgrades: metal detectors, turnstiles and more. They were long overdue.

    But nonprofits -- schools, houses of worship, museums, and universities -- need similar protections and efforts.

    Meaningless statistic that people read to mean that things are good! For a reality check do some research and find out how many of the so called "employed" require public assistance to live. Then do the research to see how making 25k a year for a family of 4 means you don't qualify for being seen as living in poverty. Hopefully we will stop insulting the hardworking American people with these useless stats or more importantly people will look beyond them for the realities. Our election proved that many of us are out of touch with the realities of our neighbors ... our fellow Americans.

    The ironies of this country: The people who got fucked by the trickle down economics and the policies of the Republican party, are about to get fucked again by the man they put in power. I suppose the universe is plenty of ways to be stupid. BTW Fuck means 'Fornication Under the Consent of the King. ' A couple wanting to have sex just asked permission to the local Sheriff, the King's representative, and he posted a sign in their door with the acronym F.U.C.K.

    With the coming administration change of the guard in D.C. looming, it is time to admit realities that are central to the failures of the ObamaCare HealthCare reform.

    The bill and law started with the goals to lower cost, improve quality and increase access to medical care. It has accomplished none of those, indeed ~ it has exasperated each of those channels and shown a bright light on the core concept of what healthcare should be. Of primary concern that must be understood in it's flawed thesis, 'Health Care is a Right'. More appropriately, Health Care is a professional service - that is guaranteed to exist in the market for the benefit of patients, community and general health. It is not that the Federal US Government should provide Universal Medical services in the avenues of Soviet Socialist - as it has attempted to for the last 7 years. Instead, Health Care is a Service (HCaaS if you will) - that is a professional commodity that should be responsible to free market concepts of supply vs demand, price transparency and endorsed competition.

    That is the direction that care should head. It is completely possible, viable, and affordable. I have been using these methods of self determination, market competition and personal responsibility to direct my own medical concerns. And recently, I have been helping launch international health care channels built on those guidelines. Let patients control their own finances, medical records, direct their own care paths and operate successfully in 20 countries - across borders, languages and currency exchanges.
