Be more kind to people you disagree with

In this live recorded video Frank Turner explains why he wrote “Be More Kind”. This is the title song of his new album so clearly something he cares about deeply. Before singing, he explains that people in the UK have reached a point where they take pride in not listening to what the other side have got to say. Well, we have first hand experience of this here and the effect it has, so here is the song:

Here are the most relevant lyrics posted, as posted by Airborne Azza on the Vevo version of the song on YouTube:

In a world that has decided that it’s going to lose its mind
Be more kind, my friends, try to be more kind

They’ve started raising walls around the world now
Like hackles raised upon a cornered cat
On the borders in our heads between things that can and can’t be said
We stopped talking to each other and there’s something wrong with that

So before you go out searching, don’t decide what you will find
Be more kind, my friends, try to be more kind

  1. Couldn’t agree more with this article. I have never met anyone who changes their entire worldview in an instant. To change someone’s ideas it takes time and patience. I know this from personal experience.
