The Power of And


Or is exclusive.

And is inclusive.

Or makes enemies.

And makes friends.

Or gets its way or blocks the way.

And gives a little, learns a lot, and finds a way.

Or vilifies.

And reaches out.

Or believes it has the truth.

And believes there is more to learn.

Or is a false choice.

And finds a third way.

Or is arrogant.

And is humble.

Or values paradigms.

And values people.

Or manipulates.

And doesn’t fall for it.

Or is a brand.

And refuses to be branded.

Or accepts the spiel.

And scrutinizes propaganda.

Or hates additional information.

And seeks it out.

Or never changes its opinion.

And may or may not change its opinion, but it will enhance its understanding. 

Or is sanctimonious.

And is empathetic.

Or is closed.

And is open.

Or is done.

And is growing.
