Common Sense…

What exactly is common sense?

It is technically defined as a good sense and sound judgment in practical matters.

Technically, the trickiest kind of yes.

This perception comes in where the reality changes.

The meaning of common sense begins to change.

It becomes based on a social norm standard rather an individual reality.

Lines and borders blur this concept even more.

If I leave my country am I expected to know the common sense of a people who’s language I cannot understand?

Easily I can respect tradition and follow a moral compass but I would still be a deviant in their society, even if only temporarily.

Standards and common sense can be but do not always need to be mutually exclusive.

A standard being defined as an idea or thing used as a measure, norm, or model in comparative evaluations.

If we give embrace to the real meaning of common sense we allow room for more learning and growth.

For your common sense is different than mine.

A film director’s common sense is different than that of a music composer.

We understand the term in a macro society norm.

As an excuse for not meeting standards.

Embrace the flow of each individuals common sense.

They willingly open up and teach what they know.

For them it’s common sense…
