Being judgemental can be a good exercise for people.
It allows a person to describe trends that they do or do not want to be associated with.
This is good.
That is bad.
It allows a person to separate themselves from the world they are living in for a moment, and pass commentary on a particular element.
A lot of people object to being judged by others. Especially other people.
"Who are you to judge?"
Well, that's a good question.
Nobody is anybody to judge, but people judge anyway.
It is a thing people do.
The judgements of man - even those that take place in a court of law - really have little effect when viewed on a universal scale.
What they represent is a attempt by man to understand his environment and his place in the universe.
At this point, it seems clear that man has forgotten this, and is under the false assumption that his judgements are important and will have some long-lasting implication.
This isnt to say that man should stop passing judgement - but rather, it is a encouragement for man to understand what man's judgements are, and where they fit into the grand scheme of things.
If you read LHX calling so-and-so a idiot, and saying that somebody's posts are ridiculous and full of nonsense - it is really quite meaningless. All it really means is that LHX identifies something as a bad trait or a bad quality that will eventually lead somebody into a difficult situation. Or it means, perhaps, that LHX had that quality in the past and paid for it.
What it doesnt necessarily mean is that LHX is right, or that anybody should listen to him without taking a look at the situation themselves.
A judgement made with a detailed explanation can be useful as a starting point for discussion, but ultimately, all these words that we type and read are nothing more than symbols of the process of man trying to identify self, learn about self, and understand his own limitations.
So keep judging.
Keep criticizing, dissecting, and analyzing.
Just do it respectfully, and understand where it is you stand exactly in the larger scheme of things.
Just how important can your words be?
