Teodrose discusses the very issues that divide the masses in ways that is easily comprehended by all. The purpose is not to speak to the crowd or to demagogue, rather, the mission is to speak against the very tactics of divide and conquer and build bridges between natural allies who have been turned into adversaries through manipulation, indifference and frustration.
The same way history, politics, culture and faith has served to divide us, the 99%, for as long as one can remember, Teodrose’s objective is to discuss these very issues in ways that is inclusive in order to instill an idea that we are truly in this together. Whereas history, politics, culture and faith have been used to foster hatred, Teodrose is intent on talking about these subject areas so that we can instead walk towards love.
