THISLANDIA is about bringing people together.
It's about reaching across
the aisles of our intolerance.
It's about remembering to
be respectful to eachother.
THISLANDIA is a STATE OF MIND.
It's like an App for our decency.
It's a plug-in for our hearts.
It's about saying, "yes, we are different,
but we can still get along."
We don't have to agree.
We can agree to disagree.
We can listen to eachother.
We can reach beyond our own self-interest,
to respect other points of view.
We need to find a way
to accept our differences,
and work together
to improve everyone's lives.
Freedom comes with a price: Civility.
Without civil, respectful interaction,
our democracy falls apart.
With it, we are stronger,
better and happier.
The moment we start hating folks
unlike ourselves, we all lose our freedom.
we are all free to speak our mind.
But when we hate, mock and troll,
we break the bond of trust
which binds our democracy.
When we hate we undermine
the very foundation of our freedom.
THISLANDIA is non-partisan.
We are not affiliated with anything,
other than the concept of
living with respect for our differences.
It is all of us. Right now.
We're just getting started. Stay tuned.
