with all the meanings from agreeing with you
to the hashtag one
Thank you, me and my brother were raised by our parents to be as helpful and kind as possible, i am really thankful for that, i can feel appreciated and loved without picking fights. This stuff starts at home. Don’t give up, we’ll get there, one day (hopefully with the help of the next generation) we will start to appreciate each other for our intrinsic value as persons, instead of an arbitrary picking order…
I agree again
when people are secure in themselves
it is easier to be kind and not bothered by others existing
Hehe, there is no shame in being afraid, just don’t project that ‘Tough Man’ image… There’s plenty of other ways to be an useful male. In my experience while growing up, it’s often it’s the bullies that have the most to prove… 😉
it is all bluster and displaying
it is how primates behave
and bullies are cowards who rely on minions and bystanders
people who are secure in themselves are not bothered that other people exist.
Yup, once they get challenged directly by someone they’ve pushed too far the fear response kicks in… 😉
from the schoolgrounds to the workplace
Hehe, also, a world filled with nice, totally different people is hopelessly fascinating,,, But i think we can shake hands on that… 😉
You sound almost Canadian
multiculturalism starts with being curious about others, eh
You’re absolutely right! I wholeheartedly believe in fact-based non-biased education (and some basic sociology thrown in for good measure). The arguments that i encounter from people that want to suppress others are hopelessly ignorant (i’ve seen the trolls on this page). Well, mostly born from greed and fear. Unfortunately, fear generates votes, even here in Europe. The next generation is however far more used to dealing with diversity, so i have hope for a more sensible set of societies at the end of my life… 🙂
scapegoating is a classic tactic.
sadly Orwell’s 1984 is deemed an instruction manual rather than the intended cautionary tale.
and in 1984, (when I was in high school)
a group of Toronto Parents wanted the book “Lord of the Flies” banned because they thought it was about men’s pants.
first books, then people
lest we forget
Yup, i’ve seen many old novels come to life, i just wish they’d skip that one… To think Nazi Germany was just 73 years ago, and already the cycle starts anew… And yes, demagogues need easy enemies. It’s past time we give them a fight for their money… 😉
America’s Operation Paperclip informs as it ends in theocracy.
what we were supposed to Lest Not Forget
It has been an absolute pleasure, i will look up Operation Paperclip, it will be my braincandy for today… 😉
Ahh, i already knew about that one after all, by the way, the Catholic Church has done the same…
yes, Hilter’s Pope, the entire “passion play” was a medieval genre of hate monger through theatre
unsurprisingly Trump Trolls and Russian Bots are now cyberattacking every restaurant named “red hen” across the USA and Canada (in violation of international law and certainly terms of service at the platform and internet service provider access.
so perhaps now that Middle Class White People are impacted
being bullied might matter, eh.
Hehe, ‘a taste of their own medicine’ also called ‘poetic justice’… 😉
too bad the literal can’t comprehend literary
they lack the irony metre and insight into their own behaviour
or impact on others
instead, they oppress in fear of becoming the minority
while whining they are not being catered to
seriously high maintenance, eh?
I’ve never understood why anyone would want to join the Nazi party. Why they hate other people who don’t look like them. The thing that bothers me about the Trump administration is that they’re promoting that same hatred in the USA
creepy disaffected males, forming into groups for power
the original Nazi party destroyed the Sexology Institute in Berlin, because they were all test subjects, with serious sexual issues
they were the original Incel group, basically, angry men not getting their way and making everyone else pay for not catering to them
consider that Norway shooter, he did not murder the Muslims he feared, he murdered other Norwegians to punish them and make them afraid – and while he acted alone and did not have a network online of radicalized others, he himself said it was not needed, as they all already had the same christian thoughts.
it is the group think, that we have to not forget and not excuse
people don’t have to all like each other, but they do have to be cooperative, it’s the social contract of the public square.
it take religion to give authority to direct actions of mental illness, being bothered that other exist, have to pee and get to do consenting things with their own genitals.
anyone who claims there’s a universe creating deity, who’s will is unknowable but who is fixated on the genitals of one species on one planet…I mean really.
people should be embarrassed and religion should be taxed.
