Tolerance might be the most important issue of our time.
Here in the United States, incessant bickering and finger pointing by the leaders and adherents of political parties only serves to create animosity and division, while problems that effect us all just continue on and on.
I've noticed a growing awareness, the germination of what might be described as a new peace movement, not about pacifism, but one that seeks to honor the genuine diversity of opinion and teaches respect for others, so long as their views are not criminal in nature. That is what a democracy is supposed to be about.
"Tolerance" expresses the contrast between that ideal and the reality of intolerance. Sections reflecting calm and stability, as in real life, alternate with those that are agitated. However, even those calm sections suggest doubt. Can such an ideal gain a foothold in today's volatile world? And can it, if developed, be sustained?
