Several thoughts about what constitutes social propriety

These are our assumptions:

A) Everyone makes mistakes

B) A person is part of the group of people that comprise “Everyone”

C) The internet is basically what everything that happens in person, but more visible

D) People make choices

E) We are all equally good, equally bad, equally in control of not being in control, and equally unique to who we were created to be

Thus,

  • Why do we pretend some people do not make mistakes?
  • Why do we pretend that some biological humans are not people?
  • Why do we pretend that the Internet is any worse that what we see everyday?
  • Why do we pretend some people make worse choices than other people that make them less of “everyone”?
  • Why do we pretend that there are better or worse people, if all choices come from decision making and the free will of equally good, equally bad, equally in control of not being in control, and equally unique people who are also not obviously not perfect?
  • Why do we pretend some people have less of a choice on the Internet than in their visible life in doing the things that will happen anyways?
  • And finally, if everyone makes choices, and those choices are made by people, and those people are equal, and all people are part of “everyone”, and everyone makes mistakes, could it be that not everyone’s choices will be perfect, and that the lack of being perfect is …normal?

Lol.

I am a second-grade teacher and pastor-to-be who loves people. I spend my weekends with friends or wandering the museums of DC alone and with a journal, trying to put words on the places of the soul that still feel wordless. I spent most of my days at school trying to learn patience through my students and running on sheer nerdy passion. I follow Jesus Christ, and savor that as my most important identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
