RESPECT - to refrain from intruding upon or interfering with, to show regard or consideration for.
Where oh where has the respect in the community gone? Do we need to treat people like children, or dogs? All the time in the community we see people talking behind someone's back or trying to steal away their submissive, trying to lure away their dominant, etc. Did someone forget to grow up somewhere along the way?
"Men are respectable only as they respect" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Respecting the rights of others is one of the things that make community and civilization possible, if you don't respect another's rights, why should they respect yours?
"He who does not have the courage to speak up for his rights cannot earn the respect of others." - Rene G. Torres
We, as a community, have failed, the fear of being seen as judgmental or a "true" wayer, makes us stand back and allow things we cannot in good conscience stand by and watch. The new generation of the community shows a lack of respect, honor, integrity, because we failed to instill it in them.
So, how do we fix it?
