Just want to share a quote that a colleague said they saw recently displayed at the Kennedy Center:
“I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones.”
– John Cage
Perhaps, it’s not what’s old or what’s new that is scary, but simply what is unconstrained evil in men’s hearts at any time or place.
It’s the age old fight of good over evil, and when evil gets the upper hand, even if just for a short time, it can be the most unbelievable and frightening to face off with.
Let’s give new ideas plenty of opportunity as long as they are based in kindness, compassion, and humanity.
