What should we do following the Uvalde massacre? What can we do? Perhaps a better question is: what should we not do?  Here are three suggestions.

First, don’t start debating gun control… not yet. Second, don’t start pointing fingers. Third, listen to stories about the victims, but set limits. So what should we do? We should recognize — we must recognize — that an increasingly polarized, politicized, and partisan culture has turned us against one another, has made us forget our common core values, has destroyed our trust in each other and in our institutions, embittering our lives at a time when we have more than any generation before us, and poisoning the spirit of too many young people who have lost hope in a future that should fill them with joy and wonder. Between now and the End of Days, there will be evil in our world.

There will be injustice, racism, and violence. But the best way to repair the world is by focusing on repairing ourselves. We all have work to do there, and the place to start might be by seeking out unlikely allies in the only battle that really matters — the battle to save our own humanity.

Just as the master of martial arts turns an opponent’s strength against himself, the Ethics Ninja turns attacks against moral values back against the adversaries of ethics, exposing groupthink and double-standards through rational argument in asymmetrical battle to vanquish the enemies of moral clarity.

  1. Yonason, I agree with the writings you present in your article, and would add just this: Evil is evil and when God was taken out of the schools, and the socialistic ideas and along with authoritarianism was slowly seeping into our young minds, crimes were overlooked, Evil had its foothold.

  2. I quite agree we live in a place of fear and doubt that has been created in our society. There is no easy answer but we need to educate ourselves and our children. We need to monitor the games kids are playing and shows they are watching that has nothing but killing in them. We have become desentised to the value of human life. I do believe there is still hope for our younger generation to make changes and keep core values. The time is now and we must all do our part.
