Killing people with drones is not justified under any circumstances. It does matter how you conduct yourself in times of war.

Arming everyone with handguns is insane. You say it’s for safety. I say it’s for fear. It does matter.

You preach on and on about the hungry and how terrible it is that children go to bed at night hungry. Yet, have you ever handed a hungry child a sandwich? It does matter.

So you are against abortion. After all, your minister thinks it’s sinful. Have you ever talked to a woman about to have an abortion? Have you asked her why? It isn’t about life. If so, that minister would be telling you capital punishment is wrong. And war. All that minister wants is to control you. A female. It does matter.

You believe politicians when they say climate change is a bunch of liberal garbage. Did you ask him or her where they got their information? Or did you ask to see their relevant Ph.D. We all should know what hot air looks like. It does matter.

You think white people are superior to all others.  Can you hear your father or mothers voice when you think that? It does matter.

You think the rich should get all of the governments resources and that the poor are living high-off-the-hog on food stamps and welfare.  I can help you trade places with someone who is down and out. You too can lead the good life. It will matter.

You think the government interfering in our private lives and private talks is a matter of security and safety. Have you given any thought at all in terms of what it means to democracy? It does matter.

We seem to think we are right about a lot of things. But we aren’t. We are the laughing stock of the world. Our arrogance will prove to be our undoing. And it will matter.
