“Jerry Ford is so dumb he can’t fart and chew gum at the same time”
I think it’s important to focus on respectful and constructive conversation that leads to a good exchange. Making negative comments about someone’s ability isn’t helpful and can make it harder for people to talk to each other in a good way. I choose to ignore these kinds of comments and instead talk to people in a respectful way about the things that count.
“I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years”
With this quote, it makes me think that it is vital to accept that people have different ideas and choices when it comes to politics. I believe in making a society of acceptance and respect that values everyone’s voice and point of view, no matter what race or background they come from. It’s important to recognize and deal with the barriers and problems that may affect different groups, and to work together to make a society that values diversity and promotes equality.
“Doing what’s right isn’t the problem. It is knowing what’s right”
As an individual, I think that making ethical decisions can be difficult and calls for thorough thought and critical analysis. When making decisions, it’s critical to take into account various viewpoints, ideals, and principles as well as to behave honorably and honestly. I can try to make educated and moral decisions that advance the common good by searching out information, participating in critical reflection, and appreciating many viewpoints.
“We have entered an age in which education is not just a luxury permitting some men an advantage over others. It has become a necessity without which a person is defenseless in this complex, industrialized society. We have truly entered the century of the educated man.”
For me, advancement and personal improvement on both the individual and societal levels depend heavily on education. By supporting equal access to education, we can provide people the knowledge, skills, and opportunities they need to fulfill their dreams and make a constructive contribution to society. A more just and equal society for all can be achieved by fostering critical thinking, creativity, and innovation through education.
