“The fact is when people are treated with empathy, dignity and respect as well as making sure their choices — or otherwise what they might have wanted if they could make their own choices — are the priorities adhered to when decisions are being made about how to proceed, there is less of a risk and danger of doing harm.”
I was thinking about this while listening to a story about voting. I got to thinking that gerrymandering may seem politically savvy and necessary for the party, whichever one it is, but that the end result is that voters in those districts that get locked into a certain party forever begin to lose hope and interest. They can’t vote and change things – ie, make their own choices.
