Can we engage in a conversation and not an argument for a minute or perhaps ten?
To refute ill-intentioned propaganda by expressing facts rather than to succumb to manipulated versions of the truth—deceit—by repeating misinformation, and to stand firmly in opposition of an unjust, corrupt system that encourages its inhabitants to support corrupt “leadership” is a show of disrespect and lack of love of country.
Could it be that the only way you feel you have to prove your love of country is to go along with “leadership” that intentionally works to create an unjust society of people who choose to remain silent and to look the other way, as long as they are thrown a few “crumbs” of ‘bread.’ Are you aware that there is a strong possibility that “leadership” views you as being only worthy of “crumbs” and as entities that are insignificant, inconvenient “hiccups” in their pursuits to remain in power, and that you are easily manipulated and labeled as the “crumb-settlers” allowing your positions on humanity to be skewed and to view others who remain in opposition as being malcontents, disgruntled, non-appreciative, miscreants?
Millions of the world’s inhabitants are duped into viewing the world as an oasis. As expected, this oasis is filled with the purest, tastiest, crystal blue waters. These waters have life-sustaining properties that are and shall always remain free of parasitic matter, cresting on the white sands of a multiplicity of euphoric islands that allegedly are only populated with the best human beings the earth has to offer. These concepts of exceptionalities are ones to live for. Consequently, the goods that have been sold to those unsuspecting, well-meaning persons jostling for their piece of this real estate that makes up these one-of-a-kind shores that allegedly are littered with opportunities, would be better served to become more perspicacious by dismissing the disingenuous voices of those “charlatans.”
No one enjoys being bombarded with negativity of any sort, let alone having to listen to someone who is perceived to be a complainer, who does not enjoy the company of an individual who perpetrates and encourages confusion, separation or whose intended purpose appears to be to engage them in unabating conversations inundated with a whoa, is me scenario.
Let us not confuse venting as a form of malcontention and an attitude of inner unrest exhibited when things are not going “their” way. However, when people employ their “third eye” and use their sagaciousness in assessing the situation, and they refuse to accept being ignored while being denied basic human rights, and are not presented opportunities to seek a place on that proposed oasis, are they not allowed to speak, to inquire, to share in the world’s dreams, to be included on those sands of which this island of an alleged euphoric, constructs, sits? Are they to sit quietly in the corner, are they to kneel on knobby, arthritic knees, happily crouched next to a padlocked door, expecting more crumbs, with stomachs rumbling, throats parched from the heat of mistreatment, causing a never-ending thirst?
Are they malcontents because they are deprived and have not been “given” a place at the edge of this oasis to drink of the pure, crystal clear waters, of that oasis? Are they to be content with gnawing on their molded crusted pieces of bread. Are they to smile and pretend to be filled with glee, through crooked and rotting teeth while being labeled as unworthy recipients of an oasis that presents its inhabitants with a life of euphoria?
What say you?
