Connection To My Last Post

Jim Wright is an excellent writer.  You NEED to read his most recent post- it’s yet another reason why I am so disgusted this week.

Reasons to Leave Society

July 13, 2014 at 8:11 am (The Serious Stuff)

I’m about to become a hermit. Seriously. People shouldn’t let me buy lottery tickets, because when I win, I’m gone.

I’m tired of this shaming culture we have now –

Shame men and tell them they are part of rape culture because they had the misfortune to be born with a penis – it automatically makes them a probable rapist.  Uhh, No. It does not.

Shame women and tell them they are gold diggers or whores, just because they have the misfortune to be born with a vagina.  Uhh, no. They are not.

Shame new parents, tell them how bad they are at the job of raising their kids, because they don’t do it EXACTLY as you do.  Uhh no, they are not.

Shame teenagers – both for having sex before age 18, and those for not having sex until after 18.  Not your damn business.

Shame children, for wanting to be children and run about, scream and play. Instead, try to regulate every minute of their day. Doesn’t work. Let them alone to play in the mud with sticks.  They aren’t going to die without your eye on them 24/7.

Shame the low income person for having something nice they had before they became poor.  Tell them they are lazy, and indigent, and basically worthless, all while treating them like crap when you have to deal with them as a hotel room cleaner, a waitress, any sort of service job.  But then also expect good service with a smile, just taking the abuse?  Not gonna happen.

Shame the person who has done well, act as if they are selfish and won’t share.  That’s not every rich person.  Some do more than you will ever know, but they don’t broadcast it, because they don’t need the acclaim to feel good about themselves.

Shame the fat for supposedly eating too much, shame the skinny for supposedly eating too little. Shame the young, the old, the healthy, the sick, shame everyone.

Treat everyone like they are pieces of dirt and scum, because somehow, that’s become the socially acceptable thing to do.

And complain. Complain about everything, especially to people who have no control over the situation whatsoever.  Complain to the news station because you didn’t like the weather today, or this week.  Complain because it snows or rains- then complain because it doesn’t. Act like people should or can control uncontrollable situations.

And don’t forget to speak like you are an authority on all things, especially when you have no clue what others are talking about.

Be a hypocrite as well – complain that deer eat your precious flowers, and poo all over your precious grass,  but when a controlled hunt is discussed to keep herds healthy, vilify anyone for it cruel and heartless, killing the poor innocent animals that cannot defend themselves.

Keep treating other people like shit if that’s how you must roll.  But stop being surprised when they stop taking it from you.

I can talk til I’m blue in the face, but the culture of the decent person appears to be gone, with the exception of a few hold outs.  Keep on keepin’ on, holdouts.  Once I’m over this ‘want to be a hermit” stage, I’ll be right back out there with you.
