Jefferson area weakly -Time stands still for no one

Tuesday, March 03, 2020

When people who are adults are making things up as they go along, they should at least acknowledge that what they are doing is Not An Extension Of What Those Who Came Before Were Doing.

We have some of the most disengaged populace in our nation's history, and it appears most folks think that is "just alright"; it is okay, it is a sign of the times, it is what it is, etc.
When folks ignore actual History and think it is all a bunch of hooey due to revisionism and partisanship let me explain something, please.

Partisanship and bigotry (racism is only one part of Bigotry and is not a synonymous term) can often be recognized and dealt with. Indeed, that is a recognized part of what the Science of History deals with

So, why is it that folks who deny there is actually a thing called Truth telling the rest of us what the Truth is? You cannot refute something by referring to that something in order to make your point, and expect the rest of us who know the history of ideas in Human culture and the basics of real Logic to agree with you. Oh, we should agree that is your opinion. Indeed it is. Does it require us to even respect it as a valid option? No, it doesn't.

I don't buy it, and never did even when I was in rebellion against my own folks and sub-culture as to what mattered and what Truth is.

And now that I am 60 and can see where I went wrong, what was pointed out plainly for over 4,ooo years as to the nature of reality and human culture, I refuse to be polite about blatent ignorance anymore.

If you don't want to be Educated that is your business. Yet don't blame Me or others like me for that. And if it is so your own business, then you need to leave the public forum to the rest of us who actually care and are trying to make a difference. Anyone can gripe, it takes a mature person to try to make a difference in Society.

Did I tell you what to think? NO! Did I tell you how to think? NO! Did I explain the Social contract that has been the basis for even the Constitution of the United States of America? YES I Did.

If you don't like that, I can't help you nor do I wish to. You must own your opinions.

I will say this: Grow up, get a spine, be inquisitive, learn, encourage others, always admit if you are wrong, be willing to listen, stop being so self-absorbed.

Peace to all who have the courage to be adults in our Society.
So shall it be now and forever amongst those who are dealing with the real world.

Did I mention anything about Religion here? Absolutely Not.

    Absolutely agree! Aggravates me so when people just go along because of what they hear from other people
    or family members. Seek, educate and go forth.

    Well written. If history is ignores then it repeats the terrible things of the past. People today make up a fake person because the lives they have lived not what they preach.
