Quote About Human Progress

“Generally, we humans are afraid to see the flaws in our own country, religion, political party, economic system, and so on, because we cannot see ourselves as having an individual identity outside of those labels. We attach ourselves to these labels so strongly that an attack on that idea feels like a personal attack on ourselves, and it becomes too painful to view it objectively.

This impedes progress and harmony.

We are not perfect. No country is perfect. No system imperfect people create is perfect.

Step outside with me for a minute every now and then. Let’s view labels as they really are. Then decide if you want them back.”

-Jordan Phoenix
