Bring Home Respect and Dignity
By Brian DeLucia
The increase in populism has not been an overnight emergence.
It has been a storm brewing for more than 10 years within the United States and other countries.
While all indications showed our economy looked strong on the surface, we have greater inequality across the world since the pre-depression years of the 1920s. We have rapid technology growth threatening job displacement. With social media, a lot of designed messaging strategies that create propaganda and we fall into the trap of gravitating to only one side of the message.
Work on the traditional philosophy of respecting each other, engaging in real conversation, and finding common ground.
There will be outliers on each side of the fence, but I believe we can bring at least 80% of the population back to a moderate and respectful way of life – people experiencing dignity again.
