We critique the action but dignify the person
Many times I ask myself: do we have the right to grade and evaluate a person? Who are we really to judge?
But maybe the better framing is: we grade and evaluate the deed, not the doer. And what can enable a teacher or a judge to assess another’s work is one’s own body of work, painstakingly pursued; each golden nugget forged through fiery sacrifice.
The moment we conflate our body of work with a feeling of superiority complex may be the moment we are prone to be hypocrites. Because what allows the truly virtuous to remain virtuous is the constant and consistent pursuit of good works.
