Freedom of Expression


Colleen was kind enough to make this available for a re-blog. Very well said... Reminds me of CP moments... makes one pause...


I heard someone say recently that they were entitled to speak their mind because "that's what America is all about".  This person was describing an ugly closing where both agents were shouting at each other and disparaging one another's competence.  You would think that someone who had earned a PhD in Business would have shown more maturity and self-control, but obviously, even well-educated people may lash out at others and place blame, instead of focusing their efforts on finding solutions.  

In America, we appreciate our freedoms and guard them carefully. We sometimes forget that along with freedom comes the need to act maturely and responsibly and not impinge on others' freedoms.  No one wants to hear an angry dispute that degrades into name-calling, especially in a professional setting.  And who wants work with someone who loses self-control under stress?

Great choice for a re-blog.  Freedom of speech has nothing to do with bad behavior.

Posted by Sharon Tara, New Hampshire Home Stager (Sharon Tara Transformations) about 11 years ago

Sharon, I love the concise way you expressed this point. Very well said. :-)

Thank God for a constitution that still protects our freedoms.  They are being challenged by the day but irresponsible behavior certainly does not help matters in the least.

Posted by Edward Bachman, Your Kingwood TX Realtor (EXIT REALTY SOLUTIONS) about 11 years ago

Edward, very true. We have to guard and cherish them because if we disdain and don't pay attention they will be eroded and stolen away one freedom at a time.

Respect and integrity and remembering in our behavior to ALWAYS do the right thing.  The first sentence of the Realtor pledge says we will act utilizing the Golden Rule... the preamble to the code of ethics makes reference to the Golden Rule... so if we would "Treat others the way we would want to be treated"... we would not have problems.. period.. Live the Golden Rule.
