Quote 16 Apr
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.
— H. P. Lovecraft, “The Call of Cthulhu” (via powdertoasty)

Heh, I love the parenthetical warning at the end of the description. Really it’s just “cunt”, and maybe “dyke” depending on what you consider profanity. Oh shit. Sorry.

Anyway, those words are some of the terms Sally Kohn says she reads and hears about herself. Her description of what she does, why that causes some people call her names, and especially how she feels about that behavior, are fascinating,

She makes the strong case that compassion and empathy are vital tools for understanding. She agrees that this sounds hokey, but she’s in a fairly unique position to give some real personal experience with how it actually works, and that gives her position a lot more heft.

Learning to separate someone’s ideas from their basic humanity is so very important. As Anthrax (the band) put it: “It’s much harder to kill a man / If you’ve seen pictures of his kids.” It’s work to see the humans behind what seem like crazy thoughts. The simplicity of a black and white “Us vs Them” mentality is pushed hard through many vectors. We don’t have time or energy to analyze all the details of every situation. But try it out once in a while. How’d these conclusions come about? They might make some more sense. They might still be dead wrong to you. But suddenly you’re dealing with people instead of ideas you disagree with. It can save hate, maybe even lives.

Watch the talk. It’s pretty short, but it’ll ripple a lot if you drop it into your consciousness pool.
