Be a unique individual.
The more diversified we are, the stronger we are as a species.
Stepping into character as a unique individual is hard, so when someone does it, we should honor it.
The problem is that life is ruled by standardization, so for any unique individual it's a struggle to develop oneself on the basis of uniqueness.
A scary trend
Looking at the world of today, it doesn't seem to get any easier. On the contrary, if you don't agree with the official political agenda, you are excluded from society. Sometimes even persecuted as a criminal.
The last couple of years of political restrictions on basic human rights has made that painfully clear. The situation in Canada at the moment is just the latest symptom of it, and we will no doubt see many more examples of it.
It's a scary trend to say the least, and we have an obligation to counter it by being unique individuals. Simply because the more diversified we are, the stronger we are as a species.
