6 "Right To Express"
If you really want to show how strong you feel about something, go out and vote at the next elections. Then too, you have more of a right to complain. Just remember that you always have the right to vote and express yourseld, but you also have the obligation to research and learn the facts before you do so. Greg
The Right To Express
Some people have a problem dealing with the fact that everyone has the right to believe things their way. People just don’t think alike. And, in actuality, that’s what makes the world work. I am writing this because I have had to deal with friends, co-workers and relatives in the past that just couldn’t deal with the fact that they couldn’t force me to agree with them. I am strong headed and sometimes stubborn. I do have my own way of thinking and if someone can convince me, I will look at their point of view, but don’t tell me I’m wrong and have to see it your way. It really hurts when someone you love tries to force their opinion on you.
The big problem and what this article is about is that some people just happen to think that their way of thinking is the only way and that everyone should be thinking that way. If the world ran like that, there would be no need for voting. Just let one person take control of the country or the world and let he/she run it their way. Kind of like what Hitler was trying to do with the whole world. Like Saddam Hussein was doing. Ruling people and even killing people, without having to worry about consequences because he was always right, in his mind. Like so many tyrant leaders have done in the past, do in the present and will continue to do in the future. The one thing we do have to do is disagree with mistreating and killing of innocent people. Nobody has the right to do that.
You can have your feelings about the way things are going or how you think they should be run, but that doesn’t mean its right, nor does it give you the right to force or require others to think or feel that way. Whether you are happy or unhappy with them, it doesn’t matter. Just don’t get upset because someone else doesn’t agree with you.
A person can and has the right to be as strongly opinionated as he/she wants. But at the same time, you have to be strong enough to allow the others to have their opinions too. And that does take a real strength. Usually, when you try to force your opinions or beliefs on someone else, it’s because you have little or no confidence in the way you believe and you want others to think like you.
