One thought on “Transactional Humanity

  1. I originally read this great article too quickly when doing the graphic and it got me thinking a lot about the perspective defined here. Now, reading it again with more time to process, and after a disturbing evening involving a ‘debate’ with friends, I am even more strongly inclined to agree with you. I have always believed in the Anne Frank philosophy that “in spite of everything …. people are really good at heart,” and approached a conversation or situation from that point, giving the other person the basic benefit of the doubt. So disappointing and disturbingly now, after seeing and hearing the behavior, comments and policy, I think I can no longer just assume everyone comes from a place of humanity, empathy and a bit of compassion. Thanks for putting it into words so well.
