“Abusus non tollit usum.” Misuse does not remove use.

Leadership: Just because effective leadership practices and principles are often misapplied, taken advantage of, or leveraged for one’s own selfish agenda, does not mean those leadership principles are invalid.

Religion: Just because religious institutions have abused power, misappropriated theological concepts, and ignored rationalism, reason, and proper philosophy, does not mean that religion itself is vapid and evil.

Technology: Just because the latest development is leveraged for illegal or immoral activity, does not mean that technology is to blame.

The question is not whether things can be misused. That is a given. The question is whether or not we will have the courage to deploy proper usage in protest of misuse and abuse.
