I Believe...

...that when communicating effectively (meaning with more intent than simply hearing yourself bark) your choice of language and volume matter.

...that you should beware of those whose own insecurity manifests into spewing insults and fighting manufactured demons - you WILL be next on their list.

...that self promotion and community building are incompatible.  One reason the DNC fails at the latter and that the "arts community" is a fiction.

...that empathy cannot be yelled or scolded into existence.

...that the power to publicly shame someone online is no different than a very text heavy version of "The Lord of the Flies."
