the easy way out

the easy way out

When you see an injustice – keep your mouth closed.

When surrounded by corruption, ignore it.

Suck up to the rich and powerful.

Let your convictions be determined by popular vote.

Wait to see the direction of the crowd, then follow.

Be a social chameleon.

Listen to gossip.

Turn your head on abuse.

Cave to pressure.

Feed your temptations.

Don’t rock the boat.

Cook the books.

Be greedy.

Don’t get involved.

Cower to bullies.

Put money ahead of people.

True, it would be easier if we just went along with what other people want. It would be better if everybody liked us. But good luck sleeping at night.

This is the right time to speak up for the right thing, the right way.
