Uncle Bob Martin broke out into a manifesto of tolerance for other people's ideas. What exactly brought him? It is difficult for me to express it, I highly recommend reading his previous article SJWJS first .

We, not the Insulted, believe that a free society relies on the mutual tolerance and forgiveness of its members in relation to each other and the ideas of others. Therefore, we strive to remain not offended by the freedom of others to speak and act in accordance with their self-identification, political views, aspirations and desires. We are not tolerant only of harm inflicted intentionally or through negligence.

Thus, based on the foregoing,

We, Not Insulted:

  • Do not be offended by what you do, say or what you are.
  • Do not be offended by your race, your age, your gender, your sexual preferences, your self-identification, your political views, your religion or any other natural or chosen traits.
  • Do not be offended by your thoughts, your choices, your prayers, your hopes, your dreams or your aspirations.
  • We celebrate, support and protect your rights to enjoy the personal dignity of your identity, your beliefs, your beliefs and your preferences.
  • We appreciate you as you are and whatever skills, intelligence, perception, wisdom and sympathy you choose to share with us.
  • We believe that you owe us nothing; and don't be offended if you prefer to have nothing to do with us.
  • Not offended by disagreement. Your desire to share dissenting thoughts and ideas is a gift that we value and cherish.
  • We believe that in order for the best ideas to break through, all ideas must be heard and appreciated. We thus encourage the expression of any and all ideas; and resist their repression.
  • We believe that ideas are not harmful as long as they clearly do not induce harmful actions.
  • Do not be offended by cautious actions that caused unintentional harm.
