I'm Old School, Guess I'm a Weirdo.
The Brexit affair and the U.S. election have a lot of people wondering if the world is going just a bit bonkers. Okay, extremely bonkers. You can call me old school, but...
I'm in favor of professionalism. I like people who are humble. I prefer "reason" over "knee-jerk reaction."
I don't think every judge is corrupt, every police officer is on the take, and every politician is in it for the power.
I appreciate experience and believe it has value. A lot.
Institutions should be improved upon and corrected to reflect changing societal needs, not torn down and replaced with chaos.
The facts should speak louder than prejudice.
I still believe in "innocent until proven guilty".
I don't believe every person of a particular religion is a fanatical nutcase.
Some of the nicest, most sincere people I know are different than me - part of a different race and culture. The politics of sharing makes more sense than the politics of hate.
Reflection and contemplation should not be seen as hesitation.
We live in a time when the "establishment" is viewed as the enemy.
But in fact, we are all part of the "establishment" - responsible for order, good governance and respect for each other.
Today, being old school may make me a weirdo.
But I'm proud to be one.
