Cartoons and dialogue.

When I see a cartoon that I like, I laugh.

When I see a cartoon that I don’t like or consider to be in poor taste, I may mutter to myself or shake my head in disgust. I don’t reach for an AK47 and go visit the cartoonist.

With all the cartooning apps available these days, you can use social media to respond to a cartoon you don’t like with your own cartoon. You don’t need to shoot the cartoonist.

Engagement requires dialogue with the ‘other’ if we are to move towards peaceful coexistence.

In my humble opinion, cartoons have a better chance of opening dialogue than AK47s.

Thanks for dropping by, Peter.
