Consequences

I’ve written alot about the hate I see online and elsewhere.  I make no secret that the hate I see that disturbs me most is that coming from various social justice proponents.  The WHY of that is that I feel it ultimately hurts the cause by turning off those in the middle and creating a backlash.

History is full of political examples of that type.  The pendulum swings too far in one direction, creating a tyranny, then people rise up in backlash and create another tyranny of an opposite nature.  The Romans and the Vandals, the French Monarchy and Napoleon, The Czars of Russia and the Communists, etc…

It’s true with social issues also.  Those convinced against their will are of the same opinion still, and angrier about it.  Let me get to the photographic proof here.  I’m seeing more and more of this kind of shirt around:

“Nope; Don’t Care”

That’s the attitude (or worse) that I’m worried about all the hate creating.  How far back the other way will the bad folks try to push everything if that becomes the response to everything?   We NEED to return to talking to each other, using logic, and tempering it with heart.

    I’m a centralist. Both extremes are just as bad as each other. The trick is to see how many righteous people you can set off at once, and maybe try to set them on each other like a bunch of spinning beyblades lol

        Yup. Be the opposite, point people towards where they don’t want to see. Or something. Because.. when you don’t make money off it, what’s the point, right? That’s the point! It pisses people off when they can’t just be right, or have the last word. Because.. why are you so calm?! How dare you laugh at me?! Aaarrrggghhh! I legit made a girl hit herself in the head by speaking calmly to her trying to get her to see the fault in her own logic. Lol like WTF dude.

    It’s the trope of “Bread and Circuses” – the sad thing being WE are the circus. I’m working on my listening, and non judgemental questioning skills. They’re a little rusty.
    As for the shirt – maybe if it had the preface “Without coffee…” LOL
