Barack Obama spoke at the Obama Foundation summit yesterday and he used the platform to call out the toxic let. Obama emphasized they while they may make up only a small part of the left, they can often be destructive and counterproductive. He pointed out that some young people, particularly on college campuses, have a tendency to be overly judgmental of others on social media, and that this is not productive activism. Instead, Obama suggested that people should focus on bringing about change and not just casting stones. He also encouraged people to look for shared values and desires with others, even if they don't agree on every issue. Obama's message was a reminder to be more inclusive and to not let perfection become the enemy of the good.
