It's not often that I commend a tedtalk, because they typically have an obvious bias in their content. This, too, was biased towards a more human approach of animal farming, of which I can agree with...to a point. However, this message was more importantly about how humans should interact with each other and respect each other, regardless of the side of the issue that each resides on. We need more of these types of tedtalks and less about why one group is better, smarter, taller, shorter, funnier, etc then the other group. We are all humans, with a variation of the same struggles that life presents. And, more importantly, we will never quite know what shoes the other person is walking in without sitting down and talking to them (or, I guess implanting some freaky neurotransmitter into each of our brains, so that your inner thoughts and feelings are known by the elites that have access to the database...creepy Elon, just creepy!). My point is...this world will continue to divide if we don't communicate. The power hungry will continue to manipulate the narrative to make it seem like we are all different, and must be treated as such...but, sit down with me for an hour, and let's see just how untrue that is. The greatest is Love! I wish you all the most of it, so please enjoy your time while you are able!
