We all have the masks we put on which is good as it protects us, helps us blend in amongst peers; the proper way to talk, approach matters and people “The Mask of civility” which by all definition is welcomed as we can’t go about insulting and fighting everyone we have disagreements with or acting like animals and touts (no offense to touts) but the meaning of this “mask” in reality is lost on us.
Our definition is “smiling at someone while bashing them behind their backs” “feeling you are better than someone because their mindset and beliefs are different” or “looking down on an individual earning an earnest living”.
This mask is put in place of morality or ethics. Without a moral compass or good morals, it just becomes hypocrisy and fakery. Be bold and proud enough to be who you are but do not disrespect the next man’s individuality.
