Social Injustices: The Absolving of human Absurdities by Abstention
Depiction of most people when it comes to influencing social injustices. Duh!!
Trying to understand the mentality of how society is influenced by ignorance on a daily basis. And the majority of us simply do nothing to stop it.
The Absolving of human Absurdities by Abstention. (The thinking that we are personally absolved from guilt by simply ignoring the problems of society)
The ignorance regarding the homosexual phenomenon around the world still amazes me.
With such wide spread global communications, it shows undeniable evidence that clearly defines this human behavior as a "natural" occurrence in all global societies.
With homosexuality being such a widespread global phenomenon, in every country, every nationality, and every community, this evidence should alert the naysayers that this is definitely not an "individual" choice of lifestyle.
And yet - the idea that homosexuality is a ''choice'', or is caused by some kind of abuse, is still on the same level of absurdity as the following statements borne out of ignorance and/or just plain stupidity:
- For years the catholic church preached that eating meat on Friday was a sin.
- women are naturally smarter than men
- men are superior to women
- the world is flat (see: http://theflatearthsociety.org/ )
- the earth was created 6,000 years ago (still the current belief in some religions)
- the world will end in 12/21/2012 (? what happened with that?)
- The "devil" is responsible for all evil in the world
- greed is good
- any religions that believe themselves to be the only gateway to heaven
- that any man has the inalienable right to "morally" judge another
- that religion does more good to a society than harm
- Mentally abusing children from birth into believing any cult doctrine is "right" and "just" and societally acceptable.
- that "modifying" what mother nature gave us as nourishment is more intelligent, safer, and better, than what creation has given us naturally (the advent of GMO foods)
- that religion trumps science
- that homosexuality is an individual 'choice' that one consciously makes.
There are many more examples that can be given, proving the stupidity of humanity.
Not just in thinking the absurd, preaching the absurd, or practicing the absurd; but allowing only a very few greedy and self serving individuals to think, say, and do those absurdities to the rest of us, without even giving it a second thought, is simply another absurdity in itself.
We are not absolved of guilt when we simply ignore the injustices being waged on others in our society every minute of every day. This shame is shared by everyone who does, or says nothing, equally as much as those who do the visible discriminating themselves.
Placing logic and the law in the hands of the 9 fallible "supreme court' judges is also an absurdity of monumental proportions as proven by their deeming corporations the same status as individuals, with all the constitutional rights of individuals (except paying taxes) to the very detriment of all except those corporations that they favor.
Now they will be deciding once and for all the fates of over 6% of the country's population. And even at that i am sure they will somehow manage to NOT solve the national problem of discrimination.
When our constitution was created, the clause regarding our "inalienable" rights did not have and "exception" clause - nor should it. The reason for naming those "basic inalienable rights" was so that, no majority could take any of these basic rights away from any minority, or deny any minority from enjoying these rights.
So the fates of billions of individuals will be based on the personal likes, and dislikes, of our "supreme" court by allowing religious influences to once again trump the law and deny the most basic rights to this minority.
If these 9 flawed humans rule against basic civil rights for this segment of our population then what is next?
Reversing the slavery laws? After all the GOP has already stated that black people were better off as slaves than they are today. http://youtu.be/1klWU5vWaXY
Reversing women's rights? This is already happening in many GOP run states. After all, we all know that men can better judge what is best for women when it comes to their reproductive and health care issues. According to our politicians, women do not have the mental ability to make these kinds of decisions for themselves.
Who will be targeted next? We, as a nation, have learned nothing from the past - and that too is being re-written by a few small minded individual in Texas: http://dwilliam.hubpages.com/hub/The-dumbing-down-of-America-by-Texas-standards and rewriting our history: http://youtu.be/1klWU5vWaXY
We are sliding down a slippery slope that leads directly to the repressive ignorance of the past.
Heck, we already gave the government the right to hunt down "terrorists" without due process of the law and incarcerate, torture and kill them. Wow, does this sound familiar to anyone?
What is the difference between this activity and the "witch hunts" of the past? The principles are the same, the end results are the same, and one is as "real" as the other.
There should be no moral judgments made by government, and certainly no influence to do so, by religions when it comes to basic human rights.
The only criteria for, who loves who, and who is allowed to marry whomever they love, is by virtue of simply being consulting adults.
No man has an inalienable right to choose for another based on their individual beliefs.
We can only pray that the ''supreme court'' is indeed 'supreme' with their interpretations of the rights for everyone as equals - instead of again acting as irresponsibly as they did with the re-defining of the status of corporations.
I for one will not be the least bit surprised if their judgmental stupidity rules once again. It will not be the first, nor will it be the last, travesty of justice doled out by our esteemed "supreme" court.
