Are We Really Going To Let This "Them & Us Society" Carry On?

Source

The Truth

How can we make a better future today when we have such bigotry and prejudice in all sides, unknowingly we have created "A Them & Us Society."

A Truth For You All - There is always somebody getting rich from bigotry, and prejudice because they themselves are the ones who placed those obstacles and barriers there in the first place! Take the media for example; They do not tell you the whole story, rather they focus on the doom and gloom part to annoy you in to being prejudiced with their propaganda and hatred. We are turning into a society that takes the word of the media as gospel when in fact it is a load of BS! The media have a lot of explaining to do in society for many things as I will point out in the following list -

Lets Start With Kids!

Celebrity Idealism - forcing kids to consider plastic surgery and feeling unhappy with themselves even leading to being bullied because they do not wear a certain label of clothing or have the good looks of a model. Some kids sadly commit suicide because of this!

Sexualisation Of Children - Kids from the early ages of Four and up to their mid teens wearing clothing that is just against moral decency to begin with. These clothes are just only the beginning, there is also shoes, underwear such as boob tubes, bras and even thongs for kids! What happened to Moral Decency??? What Happened To Protecting Your Children? Why does nobody do something about this?

Corruption Of Youth - Thanks to the media and their constant promotion of the Gangster Image as being one of respect and fear the youth have been corrupted in to this Gang Culture of drugs, violence and even the most disgraceful acts against other human beings! Again no one does anything? We can not blame it on video games alone because it is also the fault of us all for not saying anything in standing back!

I know many of you will agree and disagree with me but these issues alone need addressed because we can not carry on like this, living in fear of today's youth!

Lets Now Go On To Prejudice In Society -


Heterosexuals, Homosexuals, Bisexuals, Transsexuals - this is just one example where there is much prejudice focused in and around these groups. In fact it is well known that some Homosexuals do not like Bisexuals, and some Transsexuals do not like Homosexuals and so on and so forth, because of the actions of extremists on all sides of Society.

That is only the first of many things that we need to address, because we also have prejudices towards colour still ongoing in this the 21st century when we should be united.

Segregation and Bigotry Because Of Colour & Race - Black people, White people, Chinese People, Japanese People and many more against each other due to the actions of extremists in our society Then of course we have religious communities being made scapegoats because of the actions of the extremists.

How can we carry on like this? We suddenly forget that we are all citizens of this planet, and we permit extremist individuals to place barriers and stupid obstacles that cause "A Them & Us State" Why do we do this?

Well it stops now! its time we addressed this! not as black or white, not as gay or straight but as a United Society Of Human Beings! Who do not care about what colour, creed, race, religion, gender some one is, but rather care about their fellow human beings who are being made to suffer because of these barriers and obstacles, who are being condemned almost in to accepting that this "Them & Us State" is how society is!

Well it is not! A good man once wrote "It is necessary for evil to triumph, if all good men stand back and do nothing!" Are we going to let evil triumph in this the 21st century? Are we going to let the great work of Dr Martin Luther King, Mahatma Ghandi, Harvey Milk and the many more great people throughout history be in vain?

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lets go on to the laws!

In Britain and America we put our hope and trust in to the law, we believe that the law shall protect us and that the criminals who have wronged us shall be punished for their crime against us.

Nowadays it means nothing to a perpetrator of crime going to court, as it is perceived by the criminal as a way of earning "Street Respect & Reputation" because this gangster image and culture we have permitted to shape the society we have now. We are all of us morally responsible for this and it is up to all of us to put an end to it!

I Could Go On!

I best stop ranting at this, but its just so unfair that we allow this "Them & Us Society" we have to stop this stupidity before it spirals out of control!

There should be no "Them & Us" but rather "An All Of Us Society" that way we can rebuild a future out of the economic crisis, and all together not divided by stupid obstacles!

I know many people may disagree with me but surely you can see the bigger picture, look what is happening because of this society of hatred we now have!

Brave New World!

I honestly believe a lot of lawmakers are bigoted themselves, and they also represent bigots in their constituencies, so they have to vote that way to fulfill the number one goal of all politicians: to get re-elected.

Many conservative Churches, whether white or black, are spewing hate speech towards homosexuals. History is going to judge them harshly, and I will have no sympathy when they "pretend" to change.

That's the next thing that's going to happen. There will be a rewriting of history, and Republicans in probably 10 years time will pretend like they were never against gay marriage. It will be amusing for those of us who know better!

Hi Sooner28 thank you for responding I agree with you, thank you for commenting, we have to stand up and show our disgust at the lot. This rewriting of history forexample has to be stopped, and they need to start writing a new future instead!

Great rant, Cal!

And you are right about the media. I don't even watch or read the news because they lie on and manipulate people.

I do have a question about the gangster and gang culture. Is it as prevalent in the UK as it is in the States?

Great hub! I hope more people read it!

Thanks Dexter, I dont watch or read the news for the same reason. :)

In answer to your question, it is just as prevalent in the UK thanks to the media in this country promoting it..

I am glad you like my hub Dexter, I just had to say it as it was going around in my head and I needed to release it lol :)

This is an outstanding hub. calpol25 Business freedoms and unregulated capitalism allow for gangster rap to mislead the youth, as long as the lyrics don't attack or suggest government or police killing or injurings. The them and us society must be exposed, you did a awesome job here. My vote is awesome

Cal - I agree with your sentiments 100%. You wrote emotionally from the heart and I admire you for putting this on 'paper'.

You are absolutely correct about the 'powers that be' being corrupt - just look at all the stuff happening in the UK at present between the police, news magnates and the government. They have operated a 'divide and rule' culture for centuries and still think they can do it. But fortunately because we have this thing called the internet now, I reckon all that will change - it will take time but it will happen.

Regading the 'demonisation' of kids - how many times have you seen people cross the road to avoid a large group of youths because of the stereotypes they're fed by things like the gutter press? I remember once gabbing to and laughing with a huge group of them in the street and people were just agog thinking something terrible was going to happen to me - stereotyping!! BTW - they were my ex-students! So I know that kids are kids are kids - they haven't changed - just the way they're 'presented'.

Also people seem to be able to separate people into 2 groups - people they know and people they don't - the ones they don't get stereotyped like 'those gays - aren't they awful?' and the people they know who are gay - 'oh, he's my best friend - he's gay it doesn't matter one hoot to me' - and this is the same person!!? I've NEVER understood this. If people would just take people as they are wouldn't this be a much better human race?

There are laws to protect us Callum but until social norms are attitudes on the street are changed things will still remain difficult. As I've said before I hope to live to see the day when we all just - are!

Sorry - got a bit off topic - I don't usually rant but you got me going!!

Ian.

I agree so much Ian, I too have also been one to cross the road to avoid the youth in fear, why because the media have promoted them in a bad light! Also because people refuse to give the youth breathing space or let them have a voice! Why because ignorance promoted by the media has now made us fear the youth rather than help them.

Secondly stereotypes are a vicious circle we all of us do it and all of us are victim of it, why because the media have created this "Them and us Society" again down to some one making money and getting rich from it! Its like for example when some one is introducing their new friend, they dont introduce them like a human being, it turns in to this this scenario - "This is my friend Tony he is gay and lives next door". When his gender should not even be discussed, nor his colour creed or what ever!!

These laws Ian are one thing, but again the corruption in the media, government and even the law makers and police make it really difficult for us, the internet is both a good thing and a bad thing too as people can hide behind a screen but they dont come out and do anything. They dont take responsibility for their actions, their mistakes and the social cultural problems we are facing in society as I mention above..

Sorry rant over..

Glad you liked the hub xx

If you haven't been a teacher or heavily involved with young people in large numbers I can very well understand where you're coming from because of the way young people are presented today.

I do look forward to the day when we all just 'are'. The bigots tend to be older (look who's talking!!!) and will be gone soon so things will start to change. If you look at acceptance polls by age range you'll see what I mean. Look at the old 'Deep South' bigoted sherrifs in the 60s - how awful and stupid they look now.

Your right Ian, you see the media controls country's not the government as we are lead to believe..

I agree though I hope to see that day when we are The United Human Beings Of The Planet Earth, not the broken society of "Them and Us" we have today. :)

Absolutely, C - it's all coming out now and they're going to court - we'll have to keep a close eye to make sure the wool is not pulled over our eyes.

'The United Human Beings Of The Planet Earth' - I love and applaud this and hope to live to see it!

I agree Ian we have to watch them and make sure that they dont trick us, watch them like a hawk..

I am glad you like my view 'The United Human Beings Of The Planet Earth' is the future we need to build together, where racism, stereotypes, hatred, bigotry, and every other dreadful thing is eliminated from society and kindness, compassion, care and love and acceptance for all replaces it.. That is the way forward and that is what we need to focus on but not as a "Them and Us" but together white and black, gay and straight standing together leading the way for others to follow. Without any hate, free from fear and away from the media's terrible grip.. No more hiding behind computer screens because actions speak alot louder than words!

I guess what I hope is just a dream but Martin Luther King had a dream, and that dream is a reality now thanks to him and the courage of the many wonderful people in history, why cant my dream be a reality too?

We are dreamers and have a vision that many have had before. If enough people take on that mantle it will become reality. Other things need to be conquered too like hunger, disease etc and when ALL humans can live comfortably on this planet maybe - just maybe - what we crave will happen.

calpol25 4 years ago from Edinburgh, Scotland, UK (At Home With My Wonderful Partner) Author

Your right Ian, but before we strike at disease and huger we have to get along first and have unity as human beings so that we are all together and not apart with a "Them and Us" but together with an "All Of Us" then we can conquer the hunger, disease etc. We need to address the problems in our own society by uniting the people then and only then can we move forward and create the best future.

Your right of course it is only a dream, I just hope others who read this will read all the words and comments here because it is them and their actions, that can make this dream a reality. You have the ability for change in society for good and for bad, it is how you choose to use that power that will shape the future.

Please use it for the greater good!

I must tell you Calpol, that after leaving the forums this morning I was so drained. This whole issue is ridiculous. I can't wrap my mind around the arguments that some people put forward. This them and us society is so hypocritical because guess what? Those on the anti gay marriage side are those committing beastiality, murder, rape, paedophilia, and most of them are also racist. So in my mind they should turn their eyes inward.

calpol25 4 years ago from Edinburgh, Scotland, UK (At Home With My Wonderful Partner) Author

I agree Cardisa 100% thank you so much for stopping by your quite right there is more hypocrisy with the them and us society.. It needs to be stopped, I have now been banned from the forums for the next three days, as seemingly I must have annoyed someone.. probably because of the hub I have written that gets people to open up and forget any outside influences.. But the rest from the forums will do me good I should imagine..

Wow that was quick. Someone in that forum may have been ticked off real bad or the moderators were keeping their eyes on it. They tend to look closely at those forums that they don't get out of hand.

calpol25 4 years ago from Edinburgh, Scotland, UK (At Home With My Wonderful Partner) Author

I know, it was my own fault I suppose but its quite funny really :) x Still it will give me time to see if people can agree or not. I bet if we can get a movement of agreement on HP we might be able to stop all these out of hand forum posts and then perhaps have a proper debate.. lol :)

Hi junko, your quite right with the anger management skills still I can focus now on more writings lol come and have a look at the new hub I wrote about people agreeing see what you think :)

I couldn't agree more with your words. Brilliant hub and great to hear your passion. It's refreshing to know there are others who feel this way. I feel troubled at the way society is going. the poor are bullied and controlled by the rich on a daily basis and we are told what to think, buy, eat and even look like. If you don't follow the path of the sheeple, you are seen as difficult or a trouble maker. Yet, we still call ourselves a civilised society? When I am asked of my ethnic origin and expected to respond with 'White British' I always say 'Earthling' instead!

Peanutritious, I think I will adopt that answer as well. Might as well anyway since I have several races running through my veins! "Earthling" it is!

Thank you both so much for commenting I am adopting that answer also, we are all Earthlings! :)
