What is the purpose of public criticism?
Is it loving admonition, or mere oneupmanship?
What is the purpose of public displays of affection?
Is it sharing one’s heart’s desire, with the world,
or rebellion against what one sees as restrictive and outmoded?
What is the purpose of road rage?
Is it an outlet for uncontrollable frustration,
or a neurotic means to power?
What is the purpose of coarse language?
Is it exercise of one’s freedom of speech,
or the lazy person’s way of off-putting others?
What is the purpose of a failure to love others?
Is it a reaction to real and imagined pressures,
or a reflection of one’s lack of love for self?
