Fuck Tolerance

Acceptance is the difficult path to peace

Non-acceptance is the difficult path to integrity

Tolerance is the easy path to self struggle

 

Tolerance: to allow the existence, presence, practice, or act of without prohibition or hindrance; permit.

 

We are taught to tolerate. Tolerate other people, tolerate dishonesty, tolerate murder, tolerate pointlessness, tolerate poor quality and bad leadership.

 

We are taught that tolerance is a virtue, a sign of an open mind, a patient soul and a strong heart. That tolerance is the key to peace within society and peace within ourselves.

 

On the other side of tolerance, there are acceptance and non-acceptance. Tolerance is an act of the mind, acceptance and non-acceptance are acts of the spirit and body. Tolerance happens and stays in the mind, acceptance lives in your spirit, non-acceptance takes action in your body.

 

To tolerate means to allow for something, you can or will not accept. It is a state of constant struggle. To tolerate is the mind’s way of dealing with staying in cognitive dissonance. To teach the virtue of tolerance is to teach how to live in dissonance.

 

Tolerance as a state of self struggle, as you must constantly be in the state of self – violation and struggle to maintain the state of tolerance.

 

Tolerance, some dead zone between acceptance and non-acceptance, where the mind can constantly feed the ego drama and importance.

 

Acceptance is the difficult path to peace. Acceptance is the good bye to the violence of tolerance. I need not to tolerate you, as I accept you. I need not to tolerate the violence of government, as I have accepted violence as the mean of government.

 

Non-acceptance is the difficult path to integrity. Non-acceptance is the good bye to the violence of tolerance through actions of either fight or retract.

 

Tolerance is the easy path to self-struggle.  The easy path of the ego, and of living in compromise. To compromise your own self to allow that which you can not accept.
