New Agey types, ironically, love to accuse others of “judging.”

Nothing, contrary to New Age mentality, is wrong with judging. The problem is pre-judging.

Lady Justice does plenty of judging. She doesn’t, however, prejudge. Notice the sword of “prajna” in her right hand.

We here at elephant try and do our share of “cutting through” that “Spiritual Materialism” stuff. Still, we get happy-yappy hippie-dippy love n’lightey comments like this one all the time.

I’ve included my response. Both comments took place are from this tongue-in-cheek blog.

There’s a certain positive nihilism to thinking we can’t or shouldn’t judge anything. It’s okay to see things as they are; to call a spade a spade. Poison? Don’t drink it. Cigarettes? No, thanks.

“It’s all good” mentality? Maybe later.
