Politeness isn’t necessarily love for others, nor a form of hypocrisy. Politeness’ main role is to shield our angers, purify them as to not spill in small drops over other human beings. It’s a focusing mechanism forcing us to channel our discontent towards those who are – to the best of our reasoning – the true responsible factors.
The better a community is used to employ politeness the better is it prone to fare in attaining its deep desires. In a city where anger is splintered between petty swearing and drivers carelessness revolutions are born dead, devoid of already wasted blood.
