I Believe… [Game of Moans]

I Believe… [Game of Moans]

By Don Hall

…that we love the fictional Game of Thrones but disdain the real life one in Washington, D.C. 

…that if people spent more time fixing things and less time focused on who caused the problems, we’d be living in a problem-free world. Revenge isn’t justice; retribution isn’t progress.

…that ignorance is not evil but a possibility for new understanding. New understanding comes from a position of respect, an attempt to find common perspective (no matter how different we seem from one another), and the patience and creativity of someone who desires long-term change rather than the gratification of feeling useful within the next electoral cycle.

…that in the Game of Moans that is the non-stop embrace of victimhood, among the least convincing is that your Instagram following has been blocked and you can no longer get free hotel rooms and restaurant meals in exchange for an Influencer plug. Also that the Burger King won’t refund you for the undercooked burger because of your race.

…that he who seeks the credit first and foremost is not one to be trusted with almost anything. It’s almost always collaboration that accomplishes anything, so find the collaborators and be a village.
