The term “snowflake’ used by the political right is a attempt to destroy the virtue of compassion…it’s a term used by the narcissist and those who cannot walk a single step in another’s shoes..it’s a fitting device from Brexit Island..it’s an attempt to say I am alright fuck you. … sadly there are so many who surrender to it…they can’t imagine another culture; another experience, another sorrow or wound. The only cure is to sit with the pain of others, travel, read and Google. Think how would I feel if? It challenges us to avoid the half baked experiences we have and not to project or displace our motives and fears onto the other and to listen and to say little…like Chiron we should use our wounds to understand the other and to heal them. The process will be reciprocated…this is simply why I am an ecosocialist and a therapist My wounds, sorrows, passions and knowledge are for others. The heart Kahil Gubran observed often has a great capacity for joy and ecstasy as a result of it’s challenges and sorrows. And as the Eagles sing ” Some dance to remember others dance to forget..
Why `Snowflake` is a vile word….
