"Brotherhood Has Always Been a Verb"
Brotherhood. Some people seem to think that it’s something you “get”. They believe they are entitled to it because they belong to a certain group or affiliation. The word has made its way to decals, t-shirts, tattoos, websites, blogs, podcasts, TV shows, video games and has been tossed around so often it seems to have lost its value. People abuse the meaning by demanding it from others, bastardizing it into a commercialized marketing ploy or shoving it in another person’s face when they don’t do what they want them to do. It is all about what they can get out of it.
