Let it never be said that it never be said.
Let no thought be condemned to disappear because it was too much to bear.
Foul thoughts, bottled up, tend to fester and grow even more foul if not let out into the air and allowed to mingle with clearer and saner fare.
Am I advocating for unfettered ugly speech? No. I’m advocating for a conversation where the ugly can be met with beauty, or at least with anti-ugly. Free speech means you can say whatever you like, freely and honestly, but you have to be willing to allow a free and honest response.
Let sunshine cleanse the dark and chase it with healthy rebuke, rather than let the dark simmer and grow strong.
