Quote – “Why Respect is Objectively Earned” – 9/21/2020

“Were a person to believe respect as automatic, then they confuse it for love. It is always that a person wishes to be noticed, making them inevitably in yearning for love. Respect, however, is always earned, because were it not, we could respect anyone. We could loosely ‘respect’ the psychopath, and their ways. We could loosely ‘respect’ the pedophile, and their ways. To love any sadist, merely means to utilize criticism that would indeed back the imperfect person from their faults, to a time when they weren’t faulted. In this sense, love turns the imperfection to a perfection.”

– Modern Romanticism
