Everyone wants your vote and/or signature. Whether it is an activist group, a charity or politicians. It can be difficult to know what to support or who to vote for. I think most support what they do in good faith, only to get the shock of their life if they realize that they’ve voiced their support for something that turns out to be a proper “slippery slope.” Totally flagging out and opting for inactivity isn’t really the answer either; especially when coming across blatant declarations of war written by those who truly cannot stand their fellow country men (or fellow residents) if they stand in the way opinion or value wise. To say that I find these articles frightening, would be a gross understatement.
The world would be such a better place if there wasn’t so much sneaky behaviour, deception and hate.
I think the time has come for the citizens of The West to say Thank You and contemplate how lucky we are for living where we do, but alas, the complaints just keep on coming. I’m happy that I can pursue my passion, believe what I want, read what I want, and hopefully say what I want and create what I want. The last thing I would be interested in is to have these privileges retrieved. I don’t know why women aren’t more thankful about the fact that we are “allowed” to be as active as we are, this is not a given. Minorities (whether genuine or not) are even granted full citizenship with access to whatever institutions. Strange and peculiar identity movements are accepted, celebrated even. This isn’t really the norm; our societies are abnormal and unusual. Why do we take it for granted, and why do we assume that our societies will stay this way for ever?
At what point does the pushing and poking stop? Why on earth do people assume that the light at the end of the tunnel is Utopia? It is most likely an enemy ready to crush us or a proper reactionary movement tired of the non-stop poking and “degeneracy;” I think we ought to be grateful and know when to stop. How many cultures are as free as ours?
