A commentary on respect

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

I now know there’s no quarter. Someone steps into the political world because the stakes are so high with so few seeing danger.

I believe the world’s in trouble. I believe the United States’ present course will make us “third world” someday. We must change course. I have good ideas, low cost programs to bring in additional revenue. I believe in small governments teaming up, keeping state and federal government in line.

But when a man who warns communities must change operations and help “less fortunate municipalities so all can help the world” speaks up, he is labeled respectless. The accuser shows little character or common sense. The accuser instead gives praise of towns in need of soul shearing.

I find respect is often misused. I have experienced what few know, show or respect. So when accusers praise a community that only cares for itself it shows the troubles in the world more then ever. Joint efforts on all fronts, personnel, local, state, national and international, are needed.

The lack of respect falls on the communities or municipalities who can afford some efforts to help the world and do not.

I believe deeply that situations and attitudes must change. I feel all this outmoded, lame, borderline unethical and high tech complications are, simply “nuts.”

Abraham Lincoln’s famous line, from his Gettysburg Address, means little today. “A government of the people, by the people and for the people.” Small governments must act with their people to correct the course of America.

So a clown states, that a dedicated man has no respect for himself or his wonderful Greenwich. My reply is, that though loved, Greenwich is not wonderful. Greenwich from the Revolution, when it was a Tory town, on has just taken care of itself. After hundreds of self centered years, Greenwich should start a small Government for better big government movement.

As it stands, Greenwich is disrespectful of America and the world. For our souls, ourselves, the universe of man, Greenwich should do programs, to change present ways of business. I believe deeply changing situations and attitudes are most important. Just leave out the lame, outmoded and unethical.

From I, Jim C. Reilly, with my years of community service since the 1970s.
