Your boss says we should close America’s borders to all Muslims:

“I’m angry about what happened, same as you. But tarring an entire religion with the same brush isn’t going to fix anything. It’ll only add to the hate and lead to more terrorism. We need to find out who committed this crime and seek justice.”

Your co-workers start clucking their disapproval at the president’s actions:

“Of course, we’ll have qualms about some of our leaders’ decisions. Right now, though, we’re in a crisis, and we need to be unified.”

You overhear an employee griping about his dwindling portfolio:

“You’re lucky to be facing something temporary. At some point, your portfolio will recover. The thousands of people who suffered permanent losses—their family and friends—won’t ever fully recover.”
