Either Or…Both And
by Dwayne Phillips
Back to fundamentals. We don’t always have to choose one or the other. We can have both.
“You have to pick,” said a well meaning person.
“I choose all of the above,” said another well meaning person.
“No. That is not one of the choices,” said the first well meaning person as the face started to turn red.
“I like that choice. I’ll take it,” said the second well meaning person.
“You aren’t playing by the rules!” said the first well meaning person with a dark red face.
“I didn’t know we had rules. I didn’t know this was a game,” said the second well meaning person.
At some point, the first well meaning person storms out of the room muttering something derogatory about the second well meaning person.
There are times when we can admit that both choices are good in some situations. They aren’t wasteful redundant departments of redundancy. They are good choices for some persons at some times.
Instead of discussing philosophy, let us move on accomplishing our given tasks.
