Too much criticism, too little creation

Relevant has a fine essay on the topic of the title of this post.

Yes, in almost any area of human endeavor, such as politics, sports, business, TV programming, films, literature, music, food preparation, gardening, teaching, and, unfortunately, Christian doctrine, it's easy to find a critic. In fact, you usually don't have to look. They'll jump out of the woodwork.

That's not the way it should be. We need more creativity, in lots of areas, such as, for example, water use. We do need occasional, honest, loving criticism. We don't need self-serving, non-stop, prejudiced criticism.

Thanks for reading.

I think the "comments" feature on news articles is a bad idea. It seems to bring out the worst in people, or bring out the worst people. Sometimes I catch myself reading them, but I'm always sorry I did.

I save articles that I find of interest. I seldom save the comments.
