It isn't fleeting, it isn't ethereal, it isn't unattainable, it is a belief, one in which someone believes beyond any and all reasonable certainty that their opinion is more important than any other. Most people out there know of someone like that, they post the most outrageous things on Facebook and Twitter and Google+. They have an opinion, and it is unassailable. When you, or anyone, comments differing opinions they are told in so many words that you are idiotic for having an opinion that doesn't match theirs, or your comment is deleted, or they will unfriend you so you can no longer rein on their personal parade. In the world of being perfect, it is not a good thing to have detractors stating obvious and reasonably SANE statements that contradict.
I think most people know someone or more
than one person that is like that. Shoot, I was married to someone like
that. I was a second class person in her mind because I had thoughts
and beliefs that differed from hers. And I have family that is the same
way, firmly entrenched in their concepts of morality, decency and of
course, diet. Most of my family and people that I know, eat white
bread. Not my thing, but I'm not in their face about it nor do I
unfriend them or unfamily them because they think differently. I accept
everyone for who they are. I point out differences in philosophy, and
if they want to change their views of the world, I am happy. If not, I
still accept them as they are.
have opinions. I truly believe that Monsanto WANTS to be "GOD-LIKE".
That is pretty much the reasoning behind their drive to get House Bill
H.R. 5973 passed. That bill gives Monsanto immunity from any and all
liability for damages from any product they make. GM plants, roundup,
pesticides, everything. Yeah, GOD-LIKE is an apt description. That's
my opinion. If someone can offer evidence to the contrary, I will alter
my opinion. I do have an open mind, I believe what I see and what is
provably real, and form opinions based on that. And yeah, at times my
opinions seem like unwarranted rhetoric, but the scary part is that they
Is anyone really perfect? Certainly
my ex wife is, just ask her. But other than her, who else? Having
opinions and having a firm belief that those opinions are unassailable
is not perfection, it is nothing more than human. Being closed minded
is not any where close to achieving perfection, it is just what it is.
post is nothing more than an exercise in the human right to think, to
live your own life as you believe. I hope that all people out in the
real world see that, and believe that every other person out there has
that same right, and accepts every other person's right to think,
however different those thoughts might be from their own.
cogito, ergo sum. Have a happy day.
