Many have written me letters...many more have called me...and all with just one question burning on their minds...Kelvin, how can I become a more judgemental person? And so...In the interests of helping the human race evolve to a higher plane of enlightenment I have decided to share my insights here with you today...
First step...Always ASSUME the worst about the other person and their intentions. LIFE TIP: Little things like skin color, body type, and social class can do big things to boost your judgemental attitude. Second step. AVOID meaningful communication with those outside your inner circle...you may find yourself learning more about their true motivations, situations, intentions and slowly find your judgemental attitude slipping away as you understand their position better. LIFE TIP: Use imagination instead of communication to form your opinions about others...your imagination is a powerful tool and it becomes even more powerful when unhindered by petty things like the truth.
The third and possibly most important step is to only ASSOCIATE with others who hold the same judgemental attitude as you do. As Soacrates so wisely stated, misery loves company...and the same holds true for a judgemental attitude. LIFE TIP: Persevere...you may feel moments of loneliness or guilt as you perfect your judgemental attitude...but like all other skills in life...a judgemental attitude must be practiced daily to achieve the best results...

Hatred only fuels more hatred. 1914. One man driven by hatred and a lust for power shot Archduke Ferdinand and set off World War One. Millions die. 1919. Blinded by hatred, Allied leaders take revenge on Germany with a heavy handed peace agreement. Germany is saddled with years of chaos. 1930s, one man named Adolf, driven by hatred and a lust for power, fans the resentment of a defeated people into the inferno of World War Two. Millions more die. If the hatred of one man could create so much suffering...how much more good could come from the selfless service of one man? Or servicemen?
We remember victories and sacrifices made back then...as we should, but what about now? What if we too were willing to give up everything for a better home, a better community...a better country? If the harvest from the seeds of hatred is only more hatred...what could the harvest of a self-sacrificing love be?

Why would we want to be considered normal?
It is normal to turn on the tv and see loud and sensational coverage of the latest evil deeds while the world still has many people who quietly give of themselves for the good of their communities and never receive a word of recognition for it.
It is normal to honor entertainers as heroes for providing entertainment for an hour and a half while ignoring the heroic single mother who diligently works every single day to provide for and train up her children in the hope that they will someday be productive members of society.
It is normal to belittle people of a different skin color while ignoring the fact that a millimeter below the surface of our skin we are all the same color...when we're wounded we bleed the same type of blood...we feel the same type of pain...the dull ache whispering inside that there must be something more...the vague awareness that we were made for a different world than the one we have created for ourselves...
Considering all the things that are considered normal...what if what this world really needs is people who are willing to be considered weird?
