Look to yourself first

2015-12-02 06:00

I HOPE I am not construed as being judgmental if I say there appears to be so much judgment of others in the world.

Perhaps the antidote to most of society­’s ills lies rather in first pointing fingers at our individual selves more often. I think it’s called “integrity” and “holding oneself accountable”.

The country’s laws and by-laws provide us with ideal opportunities to practise and apply these, to be courteous, to consider others, and to give our conscience muscles some apparently much-needed exercise.

The spin-off would be amazing. It can only uplift us and improve everyone’s lives, including our own, but some may find it hard work.
